The men’s tennis team left no doubt as to which was the dominant force in their match against  SUNY Oneonta on Saturday, March 19.

Held at the Goergen Athletic Center Courts, the men protected the home turf, posting a 7-2 victory.

The Yellowjackets dominated the doubles matches. The duo of freshman Boris Borovcanin and junior Brian Rice won 8-5 over their opponents at No. 1 doubles.

At the No. 2 doubles position, junior Matt Volkov and senior Jeff Zink warded off a determined pair of Red Dragons, 9-7. Senior Dan Barbash and freshman John Lewis Etter kept the doubles streak alive with an even narrower margin of victory, outlasting Oneonta’s Adam Shapiro and Josh Slifkin with a score of 9-8 (4).

Rochester also fared well on the singles courts. Borovcanin got his second win of the day at No. 1 singles with his comeback victory over Oneonta’s Michael Keneally, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. Volkov was also a two-time winner, taking his No. 4 singles match with another from-behind win,  5-7, 6-4, and 7-5.

Rice won a decisive victory, 6-0, 6-3, at the No. 5 position, while sophomore Joel Allen rebounded from a rocky 2-6 first-game loss to capture games two and three (7-6 (2), 6-4).
