The No. 38 Cornell men’s tennis team swept No. 74 St. John’s, 7-0, on Saturday afternoon for its fifth consecutive win of the season.
The Red gained a quick 2-0 lead after winning the top two doubles matches. Junior Sam Fleck and freshman Chris Vrabel won the No.1 doubles match 8-1, and juniors Jason Luu and Quoc-Daniel Nguyen won 8-5 at the No. 2 spot.
The team was happy to get the early advantage with the doubles wins, according to Fleck.
“Doubles was great this weekend,” he said. “We played with a lot of energy on all three courts and we really worked on the stuff we had been practicing in training.”
