WASHINGTON - Georgetown University men's tennis team (10-8) won its eighth consecutive match earlier today, defeating Fairfield, 6-1, at the McDonough Outdoor Tennis Complex. The Hoyas have not lost a home men's tennis match yet this season, amassing an 8-0 mark in D.C.

After a huge conference win over St. John's on Friday the Hoyas came out Saturday and swept the doubles competition. Sophomore Daniel Khanin (Baldwin, N.Y./Pendleton) and Reese Milner (Los Angeles, Calif./Crossroads) started the sweep with an 8-1 win at third doubles. Casey Distaso (The Woodlands, Texas/Edmond North) and Charlie Caris (Des Moines, Iowa/Theodore Roosevelt) followed with a 8-4 win at one and Alex Tropiano (Laurel Hollow, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor) and Shane Korber (Newport Beach, Calif./Corona Del Mar) completed it with an 8-5 win at two doubles.

In the singles matches Caris rolled at two, 6-3, 6-1 and Khanin rebounded from a Friday loss to win 6-2, 7-5 at number one.

The clinching match was recorded by Kevin Katz (Woodbury, N.Y./Syosset), who played in just his second dual match of the year, at six singles 6-2, 6-2.

Tropiano and Distaso recorded victories on courts five and four, respectively. Tropiano won 6-3, 6-1, and Distaso won 6-4, 6-4.

GU plays next on Sunday, April 7, against GWU. The match will be played at the McDonough Outdoor Tennis Complex and begins at 11 a.m.
