The Gulls swept doubles, and claimed wins at No. 2 and No. 6 singles to clinch the match against the Beacons.

Nicholas Eherts (New Milford, Conn.) and Charles Book (Devon, Pa.) started the match with an 8-4 triumph at No. 3 doubles, while Sean McAndrews (Vineyard Haven, Mass.) and Jack DeRizzo (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) followed with an 8-2 win at No. 2.

Christopher Kirkpatrick (Newburyport, Mass.) and Justin Toler (Concord, Mass.) then completed the doubles sweep for the Gulls at No. 1 with an 8-5 victory.

In singles, play, Thomas Brent (Gorham, Maine) gave Endicott a 4-0 advantage in the match with his quick 6-2, 6-0 win at the No. 2 position. Matthew Doherty (Plymouth, Mass.) proceeded to lock up the match shortly after Brent's victory with a 6-3, 6-0 triumph at No. 6 to push Endicott's record to 8-6 overall.

The Gulls also saw Book win 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1, Keaton McCleary (Charlotte, N.C.) 6-0, 6-4 at No. 4, and Sam Salvas (Stowe, Vt.) 4-6, 6-2, 10-6 at No. 5.


"Good team win today as we saw a couple guys step up in singles spots a bit higher up than they usually play," said Endicott men's tennis head coach Jeremy Howard. "We will look to get back .500 in conference play against Curry tomorrow."


  • Doherty is now 2-0 in singles play this season with both wins coming at the No. 6 position.
  • Salvas improved to 3-1 on the year, and 2-0 in the No. 5 spot.
  • Book and Eherts won their first-ever doubles flight as a pairing today.
