Tennis hosts Hofstra Invitational

9-22-14 Men's Tennis

By Sean Williams - SPORTS EDITOR

Men’s tennis held its own side of the Hofstra Invitational a week after the Pride women dominated on home turf.

Seniors Ari Richman and Beau Wills narrowly won the Doubles A bracket against Saint Peter’s Carlos Carrera and Danil Ivanov 8-7 (2).

Ricky Hendler had plenty of success in the Singles B bracket, as the redshirt sophomore bested Stony Brook’s Brandon Stone 6-4, 6-3, and Wagner’s Charlton Boyd 7-5, 6-3.

Hendler has been a force for the Pride so far in the young season, after winning the Doubles B bracket with Niko Vulinovich at the Stony Brook Invitational.

Stuart MacLeod and Leonardo Pires both made it to the quarterfinals of the C Singles bracket, and Vulinovich lost in the quarterfinals of the B Singles bracket.

The Pride men travel down to Lawrenceville, NJ to compete against Rider University this Sunday.
