Amherst swept the singles matches as seniors Josh Rilla (Westboro, MA) and Jon Godsall (Toronto, Ontario), junior Lenny Lepner (Tartu, Estonia), and sophomores Mike Mintz (New York, NY) and Jeff Wan (Staten Island, NY) all claimed victory in straight sets. Sophomore Tal Avrahami (Riverdale, NY) needed three to down UConn’s Ben Schueler: after splitting 6-3 sets, Avrahami triumphed in the tiebreaker, 10-7.
Lepner and Rilla prevailed in the No.1 doubles match, and Avrahami and Wan secured the doubles point with a win at No. 2. Husky sophomores Christian Malerba and Joey Michaels claimed UConn’s only match of the day, an 8-4 victory at No. 3 doubles.
