January 18, 2005

AMHERST, MA – The 14th-ranked Amherst College men’s squash team fell to visiting 13th-ranked Brown University 6-3 on Tuesday. Amherst first-year Mark Rapisarda (Brooklyn, NY), sophomore Stu Landesberg (Katonah, NY) and senior Brian Lawrence (Concord, MA) earned the lone wins for the Jeffs, who dropped to 3-2 with the loss.

Rapisarda and Landesberg needed just three games to defeat Brown senior Sean O’Boyle (Auckland, New Zealand) and first-year North Whipple (Lake Forest, NY), respectively, while Lawrence bested sophomore Patrick Haynes (Bacova, VA) in four games, 6-9, 10-8, 9-6, 9-7. Brown swept four matches and earned a pair of 3-2 victories from first-year Ed Cerullo (Brooklyn, NY) and junior David Krupnick (Philadelphia, PA) as the Bears improved to 1-3.

Amherst returns to action tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5 p.m. at eighth-ranked Dartmouth College.
