Men's Tennis Completes Penn Invitational

PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania men’s tennis team opened its fall season this weekend by hosting the Penn Invitational at the Hamlin and Hecht Tennis Courts.  During the three-day event, the Quakers took on opponents from Old Dominion, Brown, Furman, Navy, William & Mary, Cornell and Columbia.

Sophomore Kyle Mautner and junior Josh Pompan each registered 3-1 marks at the top of the singles lineup. Mautner, who was slotted No. 120 in ITA’s first rankings of the season, capped off the weekend with a 6-1, 6-4 win over No. 113 Victor Pham (Columbia). His other singles wins came against Aidan Talcott of William & Mary (6-1, 6-2) and Cornell’s Chris Vrabel (6-3, 6-4). In addition, Mautner added a pair of doubles’ wins with partner Matt Nardella.

Pompan was also victorious against Columbia, taking down Jackie Tang, 11-9, in a third-set tiebreaker. He also snagged wins against the ODU and William & Mary. Freshman Kaden Funk enjoyed a nice Quaker debut, joining Mautner and Pompan with three singles wins. The Florida native began his Penn career with consecutive wins over Old Dominion, William & Mary and Cornell. He also added a pair of doubles triumphs with senior Thomas Spratt.

Another pair of freshmen made their Red and Blue debuts over the weekend. Robert Smithline joined Pompan for a pair of doubles wins over Furman and William & Mary. Max Cancilla earned a win in his first-ever collegiate singles’ match, taking down Old Dominion’s Sam Perelman, 6-1, 6-0.
