CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Penn men's tennis team could not overcome Harvard on Friday, falling to the Crimson 7-0. Harvard is now 3-0 in the Ivy League while the Quakers sit at 2-2 and in serious jeopardy of falling short in their attempt to repeat as league champions.
Playing at No. 5, Adam Schwartz was the only Quaker to win a set, as all three doubles teams fell and five of the six singles matches were decided in two sets.
No. 1 Jason Pinsky put up a late second-set rally, but was unable to complete the comeback as he fell, 6-4, 7-5.
Joseph Lok also put up a strong fight at No. 2, falling 7-5, 6-4 to Chris Clayton, ranked No. 108 in the country.
Pinsky and Lok also put up a valiant effort in doubles, as the pair brought the match to 8-6 before falling to the nation's 33rd ranked team, 8-6.
The Quakers now travel on to Hanover, N.H., where they will take on Dartmouth tomorrow afternoon at 2 p.m.
