PHILADELPHIA, PA - In the second match of a tough day, the Ephs finished second to an always strong Penn side.
Back in the five-court system, the first players on court were sophomores Carl Shuck (#2), David Pincus (#4) and Claude Smith (#6), as well as junior Ben Eisenberg (#8). Despite all battling hard, all players in the first wave were beaten 3-0 by a strong set of Penn players. Next on were sophomore Will Means (#1), freshmen Wyatt Khosrowshahi (#3) and AJ Solecki (#5), senior captain Jamie Havran (#7), and junior Oscar Merino (#9). Means, Khosrowshahi, Havran and Merino unfortunately fared no better than the first wave of Ephs and all lost 3-0 to tough opponents. Solecki won the sole game for the Ephs in the first game of his match, before eventually falling 3-1 in a hard fought match.
Coach Blair Dils had this to comment: "Always challenging to play one of the best teams in the country, especially in third match in two days, but the team rose to the challenge. The goal of these matches has been to prepare for conference play later in the season, which I feel will really help us."
