P.A.C. Champs Defeat Penn State-Berks

April 22, 2008

Reading, Pa. -

The newly crowned P.A.C champions travelled to Penn State-Berks today for a men's tennis match. Head Coach Chris Gosseaux was wary of a let down from his team. But the Knights demonstrated why they are the best of the P.A.C. defeating PSU-Berks 7-2.

The Knights fared well in doubles taking a 2-1 lead. Seniors John Slinka and Andrew Bitar fell at first doubles 6-8. But senior Barry Harvey and sophomore Dan Harnos got the Knights a point at second doubles winning 8-6. The key point came down to third doubles and freshmen Chris Brown and Greg Bridgeman took control of the match winning 8-2.

In singles play the Knights conditioning took over the match. Brown faced a very tough opponent at first singles and lost 3-6, 0-6. Gosseaux stated, "Chris's opponent today was arguably the best opponent he faced all year." With the match tied at 2-2 the Knights went back to work.

Bridgeman won at second singles 6-2, 6-2 while Slinka picked up a win at third singles 6-2, 6-3. P.A.C. MVP Dan Harnos continued the success at fourth singles with a win 6-1, 6-1. The three wins gave the Knights a commanding 5-2 lead and they never looked back.

Senior Andrew Bitar fought through a challenging match at fifth singles to win 6-4, 1-6, (10-4) while senior Barry Harvey prevailed at sixth singles 6-1, 6-2. This win gave the Knights a 7-2 victory.
