January 28, 2006
Amherst had no trouble with the Statesmen in the morning's matches, winning eight 3-0 decisions and dropping only one game. Senior tri-captain Nick Haslett (Bryn Mawr, PA) posted the morning's most decisive victory, a 9-0, 9-0, 9-0 defeat of Hobart sophomore Graham Gardiner (Locust Valley, NY). Rookie Jerome Giovinazzo (Staten Island, NY) gave up only a single point, as he downed Statesman senior Mark Jacobus (South Burlington, VT), 9-0, 9-1, 9-0.
The Jeffs couldn’t maintain the momentum into the afternoon’s match, as they dropped all nine against the University of Western Ontario. The closest match was a 3-2 loss by No. 1 rookie phenom Drew Blacker (Summit, NJ) to Mustang first-year Iain Crozier (Winnipeg, Manitoba). After dropping the first game, Blacker took a 2-1 lead after three, but fell 9-6 in each of the last two intensity-packed games.
The Jeffs return to action on Saturday, February 4, at the Little Three Championship hosted by Wesleyan University.
