USciences Takes Doubles Point; Kosiorowski and Chandragiri Win Twice as Men’s Tennis Falls Just Short at Jefferson

PHILADELPHIA – After winning the doubles point, and two singles matches, Wednesday's University of the Sciences men's tennis match at Jefferson would ultiatmately come down to a decisive three-setter, which the Rams would take to clinch a 4-3 victory over the Devils at the Abraham J. Salaman Tennis Courts. 

USciences took the doubles point after Jack Kosiorowski and Nathan Nguyen followed Sahas Chandragiri's and Evan Halperin's sweep at the third flight with a 6-4 decision at the second flight. 

It was the second win of the season for each of the two duos, who were both also victorious in the Devils' first dual match at Millersville. 

Kosirowski and Chandragiri would then both also win their second straight singles match in dual play, sweeping their respective second and fifth flight opponents 6-2, 6-4 and 6-4, 6-4.  

Kosiorowski's triumph kept USciences alive by making the score 3-2, while Chandragiri's decision came after the final outcome had been determined at No. 1 singles, where Borna Markusic and his opponent battled in the only three set match of the afternoon. 

The freshman recovered nicely from an opening 1-6 first set loss to take the second set via a tiebreaker, before falling 3-6 in the third.  

University of the Sciences returns to dual play on Friday, Sept. 21 at NYIT.
