Men's Tennis Tops Quinnipiac; Women's Tennis Falls to Quinnipiac


    HAMDEN, Conn. -- Fresh off its spring training trip to Florida, the University of Connecticut men's tennis team topped Quinnipiac, 7-0, while the women's team fell, 5-0, Wednesday afternoon in Hamden, Conn.

    Nearly sweeping each singles match in two sets on the men's side, UConn sophomore Max Zubatsky (Milwaukee, Wis.) would have to battle a three-set dual with the Braves' Eric Raymundo for the win at No. 2 singles, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.

    Women's action offered a similar situation – only in QU's favor. Sophomore No. 2 singles player Colleen Connors (Ormond Beach, Fla.) rallied in three sets with Quinnipiac's Christin Arahovites for the loss, 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-3.

    The Connecticut men improve to 7-10 for a two match winning streak, after defeating Portland State in the same fashion, 7-0, last week in Orlando, Fla. They will next play at St. John's on Tuesday, April 3 at 2:30 p.m.

    The UConn women (7-8) will next host St. John's in a BIG EAST Conference match on Friday, March 30 at 2:30 p.m. Depending on weather conditions, the Huskies will either play at the UConn Tennis Courts or the East Hartford Racquet Club in East Hartford, Conn.
