Men’s tennis wins three
The GW men’s tennis team heated up with the weather this weekend, posting a trio of home wins by beating Howard 7-0 and James Madison 5-1 Friday and Longwood 6-1 Sunday.
Juniors Erik Hannah and Chris Kushma each won singles matches and paired up to win their No. 1 doubles match in all three meetings. The Colonials won eight of their nine doubles matches over the course of the weekend, with sophomores Ugur Atalay and Richard Blumenfeld also going 3-0 as a tandem.
The Colonials will now turn their attention to next weekend’s Atlantic 10 championships, which begin Friday in Monroeville, Pa. GW was picked to win the conference in a preseason poll this year after falling in last spring’s tournament as the No. 1 seed.
