Junior Francisco Dias, sophomore Danil Zelenkov and rookie Julius Tverijonas each won their spring openers in the second, fourth and third flights, respectively.
Nationally ranked Cornell (0-1) also dropped its season opener by a 4-3 margin to Buffalo after losing the doubles point and splitting singles tilts. Amidst a five-match home swing, the Big Red host No. 72 Purdue on Saturday, Jan. 25 before welcoming GW on Sunday.
Senior Nikita Fomin enters weekend competition as the No. 124 player in the nation and No. 11 player in the ITA Atlantic Region while Dias and Zelenkov own No. 14 and 15 singles spots in the region.
