ROUNDUP: Eagles’ Results Suffer Over Weekend

Men’s Tennis:

Clemson swept the Eagles on Sunday. The No. 20 team in the country took all of the singles and doubles matches.

Aiden McNulty came the closest to edging his opponent, as he was defeated by Alejandro Augusto 6-4, 6-3. Philip Nelson and Matt Wagner lost out to Hunter Harrington and Dominique Maden in a match that went unfinished after the Tigers won the first set 6-3. The Eagles struggled to make progress in their ACC schedule against Georgia Tech, as they fell 6-1 to the Yellow Jackets. In fact, not one Eagle won a match, as the hosts were short-handed. Kyle Childree won his match by default, because Georgia Tech’s five-man squad could not produce a player for the sixth singles tie.


Sailing lost to Roger Williams and Brown in the battle for the Jan T. Friis Trophy,which was moved to Harvard due to an ice out at Mystic Lake. Erika Reineke, William Bailey, and Raul Rios led the Eagles to a third-place finish in the two-day regatta. Roger Williams also edged Boston College at the Team Race Invitational.

BC came in second place at the two-conference regatta.

The Eagles capped off their weekend by finishing in fifth at the Southern Series 1, which was hosted by Salve Regina. Tufts won the meet, beating the Eagles by 47 points.

Katya Vasilyev, Lexi Borr, and Emily Safron won their singles matches to split singles competition, but the doubles pairing of Borr and Jessica Wacnik could not get the job done in doubles play. Vasilyev and Wan-Yi Sweeting won their doubles match 8-4 to keep the contest close. The Eagles lost 4-3.

BC beat Pittsburgh on Friday evening in Dedham, Mass. Wacnick, who won her singles, spurred the 6-1 triumph. Her victory in doubles matches was assisted by Sweeting.
