WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's tennis team dropped a tough 4-3 decision to the University of Pennsylvania Quakers on Wednesday afternoon in Philadelphia, Pa. The Hoyas led early in singles play, but the Quakers battled back to take the match. Georgetown is now 0-5 on the season.
The Blue & Gray picked up the doubles point as the team of senior Charlie Caris (Des Moines, Iowa/Theodore Roosevelt) and junior Casey Distaso (The Woodlands, Texas/Edmond North) won, 8-2. Graduate student Reese Milner (Los Angeles, Calif./Crossroads) and freshman Danny Khanin (Baldwin, N.Y.) followed that with an 8-4 victory to put the Hoyas ahead, 1-0.
In singles play, Penn took the match at No. 2, but Georgetown answered as Milner won 7-6(6), 6-1 at No. 3 and Distaso picked up the 6-3, 6-4 victory at No. 6.
The Blue & Gray was just one point away from victory when Penn came roaring back to take the final three matches, all in three sets, to take the 4-3 victory away from Georgetown.
The Hoyas will be back in action next Friday as the team travels to Storrs, Conn., to take on the University of Connecticut Huskies in a BIG EAST matchup.
