Men's Tennis Rallies to Overcome Shenandoah in ODAC Play Saturday

LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Randolph fell in the first two doubles matches of the day, but responded for a 6-3 win.

Junior Daniil Lyalko (Reisterstown, Md./Park School of Baltimore) and first-year Doug Corbett (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle) lost at top doubles and first-years Q Manglapus (Falls Church, Va./-) and JT von Seggern (McLean, Va./Langley) lost at No. 2.

Both matches were 8-5 in favor of Shenandoah.

Juniors Zach Dales (Albuquerque, N.M./Albuquerque) and Dan Phung (Hanoi, Vietnam/International) were awarded a win by default at No. 3 doubles and Dales won without taking the court at No. 6 singles, allowing Randolph to sit at 2-2 entering singles competition despite losing both contested matches.

The WildCats made the most of the opportunity, winning each of the singles matches save for top singles in straight sets, earning the points needed for a win.

The WildCats host Hampden-Sydney on Tuesday.
