York on Short End of Two Sunday Contests

YORK, Pa. – The York College men's tennis team dropped a pair of matches on Sunday as the Spartans fell to Dickinson and Catholic each by 6-3 margins. With Sunday's non-conference results, their third and fourth matches in just two days, the Green and White fall to 9-5 on the season. Dickinson improves to 7-6 while the Cardinals better their season mark to 11-5.

The Spartans actually began the day in Carlisle, Pa., taking on the Red Devils at Dickinson. There, York snagged two doubles points, securing the second and third slots, respectively. Philip Myers and James Villari captured an 8-6 triumph to improve to 6-3 together on the season. The third doubles match belonged to Ryan Harvey and Nathaniel Hoskins as they secured the point with an 8-5 victory.

Hoskins tallied the point at fifth singles with a three-set 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 triumph. Hoskins currently owns York's top wins mark with 13 victories in just his rookie campaign.

The Spartans would return home for the latter match, taking on Catholic in the afternoon in York.

In this match, Travis Klein and Colin Jones combined at first doubles to secure an 8-5 victory for the Green and White.

Singles play saw Klein and Myers collect individual triumphs, capturing points at first and third singles, respectively. Klein posted his tenth win of the season with a three-set 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 victory while Myers, who improved his season mark to a strong 12-3, won 6-1, 6-4.

The Spartan squad will have little time to dwell on Sunday's results as they quickly return to action. York is slated to travel to Gettysburg on Monday, April 11, for a 4:00 pm non-conference tilt with the Bullets.
