Spartans Win Rain Shortened Match at Hood

FREDERICK, MD- The York College men’s tennis team notched an abbreviated 5-0 Capital Athletic Conference victory over Hood College on a rainy Thursday in Frederick, MD. The Spartans improve to 12-3 overall and 3-2 in the CAC while the Blazers fall to 1-6 overall and 0-4 in the conference.

The match saw all three doubles contests take place before rain forced singles play inside. The first doubles team of Ron Ho (Frederick, Md./Frederick) and Jeff Mansfield (Bartonsville, Pa./North Harford) rolled to an 8-1 win over first doubles. Braxton Koppelman (Alexandria, Va./Annandale) and Colin Jones (Felton, Pa./Red Lion) combined to post an 8-0 win in the second doubles match. Shawn Holzmann (York, Pa./York Catholic) and Patrick McKee (York, Pa./York Catholic) rolled to an 8-0 shutout win in the third doubles contest.

In singles play, Tim Mowrer (Gordonville, Pa./Pequea Valley) notched a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Michael Hardman in the first singles match. In the third singles match, Joel Trimmer (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) defeated Nick Gunther 6-0, 6-0 for the match-clinching win. The sixth singles match began but was not finished since the Spartans had already won the five matches they needed for victory. The second, fourth, and fifth singles matches were not started due to the weather.

The Spartans return to action on Monday afternoon as they host PSU-Harrisburg at 3:30 pm at the Spartan Tennis Center.
