Ephs Race Past Thoroughbreds

SARATOGA, NY-- The Williams Men's Tennis squad tallied a solid road victory Saturday, taking down Skidmore 7-2.

Williams led 2-1 after doubles play behind strong performances from their top two pairs. Bryan Chow and Trey Meyer won at number 1 8-5, and the team of Felix Sun and Matt Micheli took their pro-set 8-2.

Williams continued the momentum into singles play. Felix Sun and Zach Weiss were first off-court with matching 6-2, 6-2 wins. Will Petrie and Bryan Chow weren't far behind with straight set victories of their own. Sophomore Matt Micheli had to work harder for his win. Micheli won the first set 7-5, but fell in the second 2-6. He would go on to take the super tiebreak 10-8 and the match.

"We got off to a slow start in doubles but turned it around pretty quickly, which was good to see," commented head coach Dan Greenberg, "Zach [Weiss] and Felix [Sun] had really quality wins in singles which set the tone."

The Ephs will open conference play Monday when they travel to Hartford to face off against Trinity.
