Nichols Defeats Men’s Tennis, 6-3

DUDLEY, Mass. – The Endicott men's tennis team dropped a 6-3 match on Tuesday evening at the Robinson Tennis Courts to the five-time defending conference champions, Nichols College (13-2, 5-0 CCC).

Nicholas Eherts (New Milford, Conn.) and Keaton McCleary (Charlotte, N.C.) picked up an 8-6 victory at No. 3 doubles to start the match, but the Bison rebounded with victories at No. 1 (8-6) and No. 2 (8-4) for a 2-1 advantage headed into singles.

Nichols then capitalized on that momentum in singles with three straight wins coming from the No. 1 (6-2, 6-2), No. 4 (6-3, 6-0), and No. 5 positions (6-2, 6-1) to clinch the match.

Endicott did see Thomas Brent (Gorham, Maine) post a 7-5, 6-3 triumph at No. 6 singles, while Charles Book (Devon, Pa.) registered a 2-6, 7-5, 10-6 comeback victory at No. 3 to highlight the remainder of the Gulls' singles flights.


"Coming off a very difficult loss on Sunday, I thought our squad responded well today against the five-time defending champions," said Endicott men's tennis head coach Jeremy Howard. "We will now look to get back into the win column against UMass Boston on Thursday."


  • Endicott is 3-4 on the road this season.
  • Exerts and McCleary are now 4-2 as a doubles pairing this season, and also 2-0 in league play.
  • Brent is 4-2 in singles this year, while Book is 8-3.
  • The Bison have won 12 matches in a row.


Endicott (7-6, 2-2 CCC) hosts UMass Boston on Thursday at 3:30 PM.
