ORLANDO, Fla. – The Haverford College men's tennis team opened up its Spring Break trip with a 9-0 sweep of Schreiner on Tuesday morning.

The Fords have now swept doubles in each of their last two matches. The No. 2 pairing of Dais Nakayama and Kevin Yan stayed unbeaten with an 8-3 win in the middle of the lineup. The most convincing win of doubles play came with Rob Kresch and Ishaan Prinz picking up their second straight win together at No. 3 doubles, an 8-2 victory.

Reigning Centennial Conference Player of the Week Josh Moskovitz joined David Kong once again for the top doubles match. Haverford's No. 1 pairing emerged with an 8-5 win for its second straight victory together this spring.

Josh Moskovitz came right back for singles and allowed just one game in each set to his opponent at the top of the lineup.
