Last weekend, the Red and Blue competed in the ECAC Division I Men’s Indoor Championship and tallied their first win of the spring on the second day. The Quakers went up against the fifth seed, Brown, and won their first doubles point this spring with victories from the duos in the No. 1 spot -- senior Nikola Kocovic and freshman Matt Nardella – and No. 2 spot – senior Zach Katz and freshman Marshall Sharp.
Nardella and Katz also won their singles matches, along with sophomore Vim De Alwis, which gave Penn the 4-3 decision over the Bears.
