SPORTS UPDATE

1) Men’s tennis victorious over Kutztown

The men’s tennis team won 6-1 yesterday against Kutztown. Players were
victorious in 5 of the 6 singles matches and 2 of the 3 doubles matches.
Uncharacteristically, it was the powerhouse doubles team of Pete Schilla
’01 and Greg Emkey ’99 that failed to win the doubles point. The team rises
to 2-1 on the season.
