As the regular season came to an end for Georgetown tennis, both the men’s (14-7, 2-1 Big East) and women’s (15-5, 5-2 Big East) teams finished off successful campaigns with convincing wins and gained momentum heading into the Big East Tournament.
Men’s tennis started the week with its fifth straight win, dismantling Saint Francis, 7-0, on Thursday. The Hoyas coasted to victory, but they were temporarily derailed on Friday against No. 57 St. Johns, falling 5-2. The two wins for the Blue and Gray came at No. 1 and No. 2 singles, where senior Andrew Bruhn persevered to win in three sets and junior Charlie Caris prevailed 6-2, 6-4.
Georgetown recovered quickly on Saturday by defeating Villanova, 5-2. The Hoyas began the match by sweeping doubles to earn the first point. Caris began singles by picking up a quick 6-1, 6-1 win, and Bruhn— in his last match on the Hilltop —recovered after dropping the first set to win his second three-set match of the weekend 6-7, 6-3, 6-2. The Blue and Gray clinched the match when freshman Shane Korber triumphed over his opponent 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 at fourth singles.
