Cardinals Sweep Doubles in 8-1 Win Over Shenandoah

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Catholic University men's tennis team picked up its second win of the season on Saturday at home against Shenandoah, 8-1.

"It was a solid performance overall for our team," said head coach Nitin Deodhar. "In doubles we were aggressive and attacked the net, while in singles we were able to get into rallies, develop a rhythm, and get aggressive when the time was right. These are aspects we have been working on for the past year and it was nice to see it all come together today."

Catholic won all three doubles matches. Junior Frankie Fortunati and senior Kyle Weber posted an 8-4 victory at No. 1 doubles while junior Eric Macarski and sophomore Paul Smith won at No. 2 doubles

Fortunati and Weber both recorded wins at No. 1 and No. 3 singles, respectively, while Smith won at No. 6 singles, 6-0, 6-1.

Senior Joe Colucci and junior Dom Mazzeo won by shutout at No. 3 doubles while Colucci posted a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 5 single match.

Sophomore David Brennan was victorious at No. 4 singles, 6-3, 6-0.

The Cardinals are scheduled to compete at York (Pa.) on Sunday beginning at noon.
