Men's Tennis Dropped by No. 32 Harvard, 4-2

PHILADELPHIA – For the second-straight day, the University of Pennsylvania men’s tennis team couldn’t rebound from dropping the doubles point. This time, the Quakers fell 5-2 to No. 32 Harvard in the third-place match of the 2016 ECAC Championship.

Austin Kaplan and Nicholai Westergaard posted Penn’s lone doubles win at No. 1 (6-3), but losses at two and three provided Harvard the first point of the match.

In singles action, Vim De Alwis completed his undefeated tournament with a 6-3, 6-2 triumph at No. 2. Josh Pompan was also victorious, picking up a 7-6, 6-3 win at No. 3 singles.

Harvard’s Kenny Tao clinched the Crimson victory with a 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 win over Matt Nardella at No. 4.

The Quakers are back at home next weekend, hosting New Mexico in the Hecht Center at 3 p.m.
