Amherst Men's Tennis Wins Four Straight Matches

CALIFORNIA – The 10th-ranked Amherst College men’s tennis team has put together four straight wins during the last two days with this afternoon’s victories over Sewanee and Hope International in California. After beating Redlands and Cypress yesterday, the Lord Jeffs topped Sewanee 8-1 and Hope International 9-0 this afternoon.

Yesterday, Amherst split its lineup once again, sending the top half of the ladder to play at Redlands. The top Lord Jeff doubles team of Austin Chafetz (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) and Dan Kim (Springfield, MO) lost their bout, while Amherst’s number twos and threes each won their matches.

Sean Doerfler (Douglaston, NY) and Wes Waterman (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) paired at number three doubles for an 8-0 win, and then went on to win their singles matches. Doerfler’s three set win at number six, and Waterman’s straight set victory at number four made them the only Lord Jeffs to win in both singles and doubles against Redlands.

This afternoon, Amherst’s top half of the ladder beat Sewanee 8-1, while the second half of the team toppled Hope International in a clean sweep. Against Hope, Scott London was one of just two players to compete in both doubles and singles play, and emerged with a pair of wins without surrendering a single game. London won his doubles bout 8-0, before taking home a singles victory 6-0, 6-0.
