Men's Tennis Dominant in 9-0 Victory over Emory & Henry

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- Friday evening saw the Virginia Wesleyan College men's tennis team defeat visiting Emory & Henry College by a 9-0 score in ODAC action.

Seven different Marlins factored in the victory for VWC as the squad notched its first ODAC victory of the season.

In the doubles portion of the afternoon, the third doubles team of Andreas Combos and Jake Morgan cruised en route to an 8-2 victory, pacing the Marlins for what would become a doubles sweep of the Wasps. 

That momentum was carried over into the singles portion of the match, with senior Brendan Kelleher pacing the efforts at second singles with a dominant, 6-0, 6-1 victory.  Drew Fairbanks notched his first career singles victory at home at sixth singles.

Virginia Wesleyan (3-13/1-4) host Roanoke College (3-10/2-5) next Saturday, April 22 for an ODAC match against Roanoke College at 11 a.m. It will be Senior Day for the Marlins with Kelleher to be recognized in a pre-match ceremony.
