BABSON PARK, Mass.—The Babson College men's tennis team dropped its second consecutive match on Saturday night, falling to second-ranked Bowdoin College, 9-0, at the Boston Sports Club.
The Beavers are now 3-6 on the year, while Bowdoin improves to 7-0.
Playing its third nationally-ranked opponent of the spring, the Green and White fell behind 3-0 after doubles and was never able to recover. Seniors Victor Vu (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Saif Rahim (Hong Kong) suffered an 8-1 loss at number one, classmate Isaac Thylen (Surfside, Fla.) and first-year Brandon Rosenbluth (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) lost 8-3 at number and the duo of junior Dom Wysolmerski (Rutland, Vt.) and sophomore Ben Roque (Coral Gables, Fla.) dropped an 8-6 decision at number three.
Thylen was defeated by the region's fourth-ranked singles player, 7-5, 6-4, at number one, while no other Babson player won more than four games at second through six singles. Vu was defeated 6-4, 6-0 at number two, and both Rosenbluth at number three and Rahim at number four went down 6-3, 6-1.
Babson returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts MIT to open conference play at 3:30 p.m., while Bowdoin travels to Wesleyan for a 2 p.m. match on Sunday.
