Fordham Men’s Tennis was scheduled to have two tournaments over the weekend on its home courts, the Hawthorn Rooney Courts.  One was against Hunter College on Saturday, and the other against Rider University on Sunday.  The match against Rider was cancelled, but it was still a successful weekend for Fordham as it won 6-1 against Hunter.

In doubles play, senior Nick Borak and junior Joseph Kavaloski defeated their opponents with a score of 6-1 in the first doubles position. In second doubles, freshmen Steven Duka and Fabian Mauritzson won 6-1, as well.  Juniors Harris Durkovic and Cameron Posillico also came out with a win of 6-1 for Fordham’s third doubles position.  This allowed the Rams to take the doubles point, leading Hunter 1-0.

The singles matches were equally as rewarding for Fordham, with five of the six singles points going to the Rams.  In first singles, freshman Jeremy Chung defeated his opponent 6-4, 6-1, while in second singles, classmate Steven Duka won his match 6-4, 6-2.  Junior Joseph Kavaloski was in the third singles position, finishing his match with a score of 1-6, 5-7.  In fourth singles, junior Cameron Posillico won 6-4, 6-2, while in fifth singles classmate Harris Durkovic triumphed with a score of 6-0, 6-2.  Finally, in the sixth singles position, freshman Gabriel Mashaal swept his match with a score of 6-0, 6-1.  With all of these matches finishing in two sets, Fordham came out on top with a final score of 6-1 against Hunter.

The men’s tennis team competes again on Friday, March 31, on its home courts.  The team will be facing Yeshiva University starting at noon.
