#9 Williams Outlasts Stags in Austin

#9 Williams College defeated the Stags 7-2 at the Austin Tennis Academy on Saturday. It was the second consecutive loss for CMS against a top ten nationally ranked foe, and match two of a three match road trip in Texas. The Stags suffered their first doubles sweep since the opening day of the season, despite being up a service break at positions one and three.

CMS earned its two points in the singles, with sophomore Mike Starr (San Ramon, CA [pictured]) winning at number four, and junior Lawrence Wang (Orange, CA) winning at number one. Starr's win improved his record to 7-2 on the season. Wang fought back from a set down to earn a 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over 3rd ranked Dan Greenberg, which avenged a loss to Greenberg last season.

CMS concludes their road trip by taking on 3rd ranked Washington University (St. Louis) at the Austin Tennis Academy on Sunday at 10 AM. The Stags are 14-6 on the season.
