After three of their first seven games were postponed, the Brooklyn College men’s tennis team has started off the season 2-2.
In consecutive wins to open the season against Lehman College and at Rutgers-Camden, the Bulldogs started off the season strong before taking a trip to Florida, where they competed against tough non-conference opponents.
Brooklyn’s travels found them in Orlando, where they earned two tough losses. The Bulldogs were crushed by Western New England University and Hamilton College 1-8 and 0-9, respectively.
Rohan Mathur earned Brooklyn College’s lone victory in their trip to the Sunshine State, as he defeated Western New England’s Luke Surawski 6-2 and 6-1 in singles play.
After earning City University of New York Athletic Conference (CUNYAC) Player of the Week after the team’s first two games last week, Mathur seemed to be the only Bulldog that was able to seriously compete on the trip after his performance against Western New England.
In the team’s matchup against Hamilton College, the Bulldogs were walloped. They were shutout at least once in every singles match, and outscored 24-1 in doubles play.
The Bulldogs will host Hunter College on Tuesday, after their matchup against the College of Saint Elizabeth was postponed. The spring break matinee matchup against the Hawks will start at noon at the Roosevelt Courts.
The Bulldogs will start a streak of extremely important games Tuesday, as five of their next six competitions will take place against conference opponents.
