Jeffs Sweep NYU 9-0 Indoors For Another Impressive Win

April 15, 2007

AMHERST, MA – The Amherst College men’s tennis team easily swept New York University this afternoon indoors, after poor weather conditions forced the match inside. The Lord Jeffs took advantage of the unusual surroundings, which have become so familiar in this bizarre stretch of spring weather, and took a 9-0 win over NYU.

Amherst defeated all three doubles opponents from NYU to start the day, but would have to slow its momentum due to a limited number of courts available for singles play. The Amherst one, three and five seeds took the court first, and sealed the win by jumping out to a six point advantage after as many matches were completed.

Junior Jeffrey Wan (Staten Island, NY) and first-year Daniel Kim (Springfield, MO) grabbed impressive wins in the three and five spots, winning 6-0, 6-1 and 6-0, 6-0, respectively. Top-seed Zack Lerner (Scarsdale, NY) grabbed another singles win with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Mike Gurevich.

Senior co-captain Karti Subramanian (Bethesda, NY) led the second group of singles matches to the court, and handed NYU’s Calvin Chou a 6-1, 6-3 defeat in the two hole. The four and six seeded Jeffs held form to close out the 9-0 win for Amherst.

Amherst’s second match of the day, against Springfield, was postponed to Friday, April 20 at 3:30 p.m., but the Jeffs return to action on Wednesday for a NESCAC road match at Tufts.
