men's tennis edged by Western Michigan 4-3 in Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Binghamton men's tennis (0-3) captured the doubles point but lost four of six singles contests and fell 4-3 to Western Michigan (6-1) Friday afternoon at the Nebraska Tennis Center.
The Bearcats won at the top two doubles positions to claim the doubles point. The top duo of senior Sven Vloedgraven and junior Gilbert Wong posted a 9-8 win and the No. 2 tandem of senior Arnav Jain and junior Alexandre Haggai also pulled out a 9-8 win.
In singles, however, Vloedgraven and Jain were the lone winners. Vloedgraven, ranked No. 55 in the latest ITA rankings, rolled to a straight-set win to snap a rare two-match losing streak. Jain won for the second time in three duals this winter.
The Bearcats face the host school, No. 40 Nebraska Saturday night.
