Despite their loss on Saturday to Denison 6–3, the Tartans rebounded and defeated the University of Mary Washington yesterday, 5–4.

The Tartans got off to a rough start against Denison, taking only one doubles match. Sophomores Jooho Yu and Harsha Rao topped their opponents 9–7 at No. 3 doubles to prevent the sweep. The second and third points came from senior Alex Nemerov, who battled out his match 4–6, 6–3, 7–5, and sophomore Duke Miller, who dropped five games 6–2, 6–3 to add the Tartans’ final point.

Yesterday, the Tartans rallied to come back after being down 2–1 in doubles, with the lone point earned by junior Jeremy King and Nemerov at No. 2 doubles 8–4. The first singles win came from Yu at No. 6 singles, who won his match 6–4, 6–0. King finished his match shortly after. Miller and Rao added the final two points at No. 2 and No. 4 singles, respectively, to clinch the match.
