HILTON HEAD, S.C. – The Endicott men's tennis team fell to Berry College, 8-1, on Tuesday afternoon in their second match of the PTR Spring Tennis Fest at Hilton Head High School. Berry controlled the doubles matchups before going on to win all but one of the singles flights.
In singles play, Christopher Kirkpatrick (Newburyport, Mass.) was the sole winner for the Gulls at the No. 1 flight, winning by a score of 6-7 (7-2), 7-5, 10-7.
"Great experience for our guys against a tough Berry team," stated Endicott men's tennis coach Jeremy Howard, "Really impressive win for Chris Kirkpatrick at number one singles to avoid the sweep."
