CSI TENNIS STORMS PAST YORK FOR THIRD STRAIGHT

The College of Staten Island men’s tennis squad took their third straight win and their second in the CUNYAC, storming past York College, 9-0, in a match played earlier this afternoon in Jamaica, Queens. CSI advanced to 8-4 overall and 4-1 in conference play, while York dipped to 1-5, 0-2, respectively.

CSI began by taking all three doubles matches, Joseph Taranto and Masaru Takaki soared over YC’s Ayman Busat and Erick Giron, 8-4. At No. 2, Nicholas Zikos teamed with Daniel Ursomanno and at No. 3, the team of Bobby Hargraves and Gary Ambartsumov, with the pair of squads both earning 8-3 wins.

CSI followed by sweeping singles. Zikos took a hard fought, 7-5, 6-3, winner over Busat at the top spot while down at No. 6 Hargraves did cruise in his first set, 6-1, over Michael Lateef, but rallied valiantly to earn a 7-6 win in set two to take the match.

CSI next plays Purchase State in a non-conference test on Monday afternoon at 3:30pm at the CSI Tennis Center.
