STEVENSON, MD – The York College men’s tennis squad took their first Capital Athletic Conference match of 2009 with a clean sweep 9-0 victory over Stevenson University Tuesday afternoon. The visiting Spartans up their season mark to an even 3-3 (1-0 CAC) while the Mustangs drop their first match of the spring and fall to 0-1 (0-1 CAC).
    Tim Mowrer (Gordonville, Pa./Pequea Valley) secured his fourth win of the season as the Spartans’ #1 singles player. The senior bested Ryan Morse by a comfortable 6-0, 6-1 margin.
    Paul Graci (Exton, Pa./Bishop Shanahan) and Joel Trimmer (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) notched victories in the #2 and #3 singles slots. Graci’s fourth win came via a tough 7-5, 6-2 triumph while Trimmer topped Korey Garner 6-3, 6-2 to even his personal singles record at 3-3.
    The Spartans’ #4 singles player, Steve Collison (Westville, N.J./Woodbury), posted a flawless 6-0, 6-0 triumph as he joins Trimmer with a 3-3 2009 mark. Jeff Mansfield (Bartonsville, Pa./North Harford) backed up Collison’s win with one of his own in the fifth slot. Mansfield bested Ben Petasky 6-3, 6-2.
    Travis Klein (East Stroudsburg, Pa./Pocono Mountain East), fresh off his recent CAC Player of the Week honors, continued his solid play as the Spartans’ #6 singles player with a 6-1, 6-2 win. Klein, who has won three consecutive matches, currently owns a 5-1 record for 2009.
    Just as with singles play, the Green and White procured each of the three doubles matches by comfortable margins. Mowrer paired with Colin Jones (Felton, Pa./Red Lion) at #1 to record an 8-2 victory. That win evens the duo’s 2009 mark to 3-3.
