Men's Tennis Handles Emerson for Fifth Straight Win, 9-0

DANVERS, Mass.—Junior Brandon Rosenbluth (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) picked up wins in both singles and doubles as visiting Babson College defeated Emerson College, 9-0, in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) men's tennis action on Saturday afternoon.

Winners of its last five matches, Babson improves to 10-3 overall and 4-0 in league play, while Emerson drops to 2-13 overall and 0-4 in league play with its 28th consecutive NEWMAC loss.

Rosenbluth and first-year Chris Kolesnik (Staten Island, N.Y.) recorded an 8-1 result at number one doubles, while sophomores Dan Levitan (Winter Park, Fla.) and Dylan Pace (Atherton, Calif.) won 8-0 at number two. The Beavers won by default at number three doubles as the Lions had just five players available for the match.

First-year Andre Libnic (Coral Gables, Fla.) won 6-1, 6-1 at number one singles, Rosenbluth posted a 6-0, 6-0 decision at number two, and senior Connor Chin (Lexington, Mass.) contributed a 6-2, 7-5 victory at number three. Sophomore Scott Riester (Lynnfield, Mass.) was a 6-1, 6-1 winner at number four and classmate Jonathan Ben-Rey (Las Vegas, Nev.) recorded a 6-0, 6-0 triumph at number five.

Babson returns to action on Monday when it hosts 13th-ranked MIT at 3:30 p.m., while Emerson travels to Coast Guard on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
