MERION STATION, Pa. – It was a record-breaking day at the SJU Tennis Complex on Sunday afternoon as the Saint Joseph’s men’s tennis team defeated Chestnut Hill, 5-2, for its school-record 16th dual match victory of the season.

Saint Joseph’s (16-5) surpassed the previous record of 15 wins set by the 1970-71 and 2002-03 Hawk squads.

The Hawks won the doubles point with victories in the first and third flights; Jose Sierra and Pierre Brondeau combined for an 8-3 win in the first flight, while Jason Sisti and Clark Ruiz notched an 8-7 win in the third.

The Griffins earned a pair of singles points in the first and fifth flights, but the Hawks took four points to lock up their seventh win in their last eight matches.  Brondeau and Kyle Chalmers were straight-sets winners in the second and third flights, Tristan Boustany extended his personal winning streak to eight matches in the fourth flight, and Sisti won a supertiebreaker in the sixth.

“It was a convincing conclusion to the regular season,” said head coach Ian Crookenden.  “It was a satisfying result, even though our three seniors did not win singles points.  Jose and Paranjay [Malhotra] played tough, and Dan [Barrus] is injured, but we are looking forward to hearing our seeding for the Atlantic 10 Championship.”

The conference championship tournament kicks off on Thursday, April 17, at the Boar’s Head Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.
