WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University men’s tennis team claimed a pair of victories over the weekend as they gained some momentum heading into their annual Spring Break trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina next week. PBA opened up the weekend slate with a 9-0 win on Friday versus Pennsylvania State University-Abington and followed that up with another 9-0 victory on Saturday over Saint Vincent University.
The two victories were the first of the season for the Sailfish men’s tennis team who was previously 0-8.
Friday’s win took place at the Delray Tennis Center while Saturday’s sweep was played at the Oxbridge Academy Courts in West Palm Beach.
PBA had little issues with PSU-Abington as they dropped only a total of five games in singles and two games in doubles for the entire match.
Mark Heimberger carried the team in singles at the top with a 6-1, 6-0 win while Giuseppe Guarnieri, Asti Adams, Nicholas Battistini, Fernando Arroyo and Jaime Verd each earned wins in singles.
Matt Leeds teamed with Heimberger for an 8-1 win at No. 1-doubles while Guarnieri partnered with freshman Michael Tsoi for an 8-1 PBA victory at No. 2-doubles. Adams joined with Kevin Reifler for an 8-0 win at No. 3-doubles.
Versus Saint Vincent’s the Fish would have a bit more of a challenge but still worked hard to complete a 9-0 win.
Heimberger and Leeds were once again solid at No. 1-doubles for an 8-5 win while the Fish tandems of Guarnieri/Tsoi and Battistini/Reifler were equally impressive at Nos. 2 and 3-doubles with an 8-2 and 8-1 set of wins respectively.
Tsoi would earn a spot in singles action as well with a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 6-singles while the remainder of the lineup produced winning results.
The Fish will open their spring break trip against Brevard College at Chaplin Park in Hilton Head, S.C. on Monday, March 4 at 8 am.
