On Saturday, April 21, men’s tennis ended its regular season with a devastating 6-3 loss to Skidmore College, finishing with a season record of 13-8 and ranking 17th in the region.
At second doubles were freshmen Matt Levine and Ben Shapiro, who beat their Skidmore rivals with a score of 8-4. The YellowJackets lost the other two matches, 3-8 each.
The ’Jackets did not fare any better at singles, winning only two of six matches. Levine lost 6-4, 6-0 at first singles to Skidmore’s Jimmy Sherpa. Junior Boris Borovcanin, on the other hand, defeated Skidmore’s Miles Ransom in two out of three sets, 6-2 and 7-5.
“I guess I was just trying to focus and hit my shots,” Borovcanin said. “The combination of focus and adrenaline caused me to win.”
Shapiro followed Borovcanin’s lead with a handy defeat at fourth singles in two sets, scoring 7-6 and 6-4.
The team now prepares for several away matches at the UAA Championships, which will begin on April 26 in Orlando, Fla.

Time unfortunately still a circle

Ever since the invention of the wheel, humanity’s been blessed with one terrible curse: the realization that all things are, in fact, cyclical.
