MEDFORD – Ross Kamin, playing on Senior Day, won in singles and doubles as the 18th-ranked Tufts University men's tennis team defeated NESCAC foe Connecticut College 9-0 on Saturday.
Kamin, the lone senior on the Jumbo roster, joined sophomore Boris Sorkin for an 8-6 victory over the Camels' Will Cannon and Guillermo Garcia Rincon on the first doubles court. Kamin then defeated Cannon 6-1, 6-2 in fifth singles to help Tufts earn a shutout.
The match was moved indoors to the Gantcher Center due to rain in Medford. Tufts' #3 doubles tandem of freshman Paris Pentousis with classmate Dylan Glickman won 8-5 to get the hosts started. Junior Zach Shaff with junior Jason Scanlon at #2 doubles (8-6) added to the sweep for Tufts.
Pentousis dominated first singles 6-1, 6-1 to give the Jumbos a 4-0 lead. Victories by sophomore Carl-Herman Grant at third singles (6-0, 6-2) and freshman Jack Moldenhauer in the fourth spot (6-2, 6-0) clinched the match.
The victory propelled Tufts to 6-7 overall and 2-4 in the conference. The Jumbos' match against MIT scheduled for later today was cancelled when play was moved inside. Head coach Karl Gregor's team travels up to Colby College in Waterville, Maine for conference play tomorrow.
Connecticut College dropped to 7-8 (1-5 NESCSAC) with today's loss. They host Hamilton College in a conference match next Saturday.
