March 15, 2009
Woodbridge, VA - The George Washington University men's tennis (3-5) team defeated Atlantic 10 rival Duquesne, 7-0, Saturday, at the Montclair Country Club.
Yan Levinski transitioned to the No. 1 flight to win his third singes match in a row, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. His GW teammates followed with wins in every flight in singles match ups.
"It's nice to get a convincing win but we still have things to work on with this young team," said head coach Greg Munoz. "We still need to sharpen our doubles play but now that we are all healthy, we can finally do that."
In doubles play, Richard Blumenfeld teamed up with Ugar Atalay in the No. 1 flight to win 9-8 (4-0) over their Duquesne counterparts.
"I am proud of the team's progress and we are focusing on continual improvement," said Munoz. "Anything can happen when it comes to the conference championships and we are well aware of that. We need to stay focused and injury free."
The Colonials head on the road to play Richmond on Friday, Mar. 20, at 2:30 p.m. then host Binghamton in their home outdoor opener at the Mount Vernon tennis courts on Sunday, Mar. 22, at 11 a.m.
