Seahawk Men's Tennis Back in Win Column
Dover, Del. – The St. Mary's College of Maryland men's tennis team rebounded from Sunday's loss to NCAA Division II Davis & Elkins College with Wednesday's 8-1 Capital Athletic Conference victory over the host Wesley College Wolverines.
Wednesday's win marks the 14th of the season for the Seahawks, besting last year's school record of 13 wins in a season.

The Seahawks then cruised in singles action, claiming straight set victories in all but two matches. Sophomore J. Guzzone (Columbia, Md./Hammond) posted a 4-6, 6-2, 10-8 triumph over junior Kevin Mangini (Mount Holly, N.J./Rancocas Valley) at No. 6 singles.
Senior Elliot Russell (Freeport, Maine/Freeport) registered his first win of the season in his first match of the year, notching a 6-1, 4-6, 11-9 victory over sophomore Andrew Crews (Philadelphia, Pa./Floyd E. Kellam) at No. 5 singles.
Junior Arvin Wong (Bethesda, Md./Walt Whitman), the Seahawks' newest member of the double-digit singles wins club, tallied a 6-0, 6-1 win over senior Cochise Lucas (Hyattsville, Md./Parkdale) at the No. 2 flight to improve to 11-6 on the season.
