CLAREMONT, Calif. – The No. 3 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's tennis team swept a SCIAC Saturday doubleheader, defeating Occidental 9-0 at home, and Chapman 8-1 at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center. Freshmen Jake Berber (CMC) and Jake Williams (HMC) led CMS with three and two wins respectively on the day. The Stags move to 22-2 overall and  6-0 in SCIAC, and sole possession of first place in conference play.

CMS won five of six doubles matches on Saturday, with No. 2 pair Berber and senior captain Glenn Hull (CMC) getting two comfortable victories. Berber and Hull have now won five of their last six and are a perfect 5-0 at the No. 2 position. Hull also notched his 17th singles win of the year, and remains a perfect 14-0 in dual matches with a victory at No. 1 singles against Chapman. Berber won his fourth singles match of the spring at the No. 4 spot against Occidental, giving CMS a 7-0 lead in the morning match.

Williams was paired with senior Max Macey (CMC) at No. 3 doubles for the fifth time this season in the match against Chapman. Their win put the Stags up 2-0, and both players then contributed in singles, with Macey victorious at No. 2 and Williams a winner at No. 6. Macey has now won 16 of 17 singles matches, while Williams is perfect in his two singles appearances this season.
