KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The Mount Saint Mary College men’s tennis team (4-3) closed out its trip to Florida with a split, falling to Colby-Sawyer College, 7-2, and then bouncing back to take down Penn State Berks, 8-1, Thursday evening.

Sophomore Dan Witke was involved in the two wins for the Knights against Colby-Sawyer. He picked up a doubles victory at flight three with graduate student Kevin Ryan, 9-7, over Matt Plouffe and Will Triebel, and then came out on top in his No. 4 singles match against Dean Boodakian, 7-5, 0-6, 10-6.

Witke picked up wins in both of those slots in the later match to contribute to the Knights’ 8-1 win over Penn State Berks. This time, he won his No. 3 doubles match with sophomore Joe Borden. Senior Greg Jacob and junior Nate Dimmie took care of business at No. 1 doubles, and sophomore Mike Balokoz and freshman Gavin McNulty grabbed a win at flight two. All three Knights doubles pairs won their respective matches by a score of 8-0.

Dimmie grabbed a win at No. 2 singles over Volan Nnapalle, 4-6, 7-6 (5), 10-3.
