THE RUNDOWN:  

  • The Wheaton College men's tennis team returned to New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) action Wednesday evening with the Lyons falling to MIT 9-0.
  • Wheaton worked hard in doubles with Ian Tracy and Javier Esteban de Celis (No. 1) and Ned Roosevelt and David Hernaez Sanz (No. 3) each matching their Engineer competitors most of the match but eventually, both pairs fell 8-6. 
  • The Lyons best chance at a single point came in the No. 1 spot where Tracy battled Alex Cauneac. The Lyons first-year fell 7-6 (4) in the opening set before fighting back and earning a convincing 6-3 win in the second. In the deciding set, both players kept each other on their toes, but Cauneac found a way to earn the match win with a 10-6 victory in the third set. 

UP NEXT: Wheaton returns to action on Saturday, April 13 for a 10:30 a.m. NEWMAC match at Emerson.
