October 7, 2000

SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York - The Amherst College men¹s tennis team earned its second dominating match win of the week on Saturday, taking every match en route to a 6-0 blanking of host Skidmore College on Saturday morning in Saratoga Springs.

The Jeffs' dominance started in the doubles matches, where senior Captain Reeve Segal (Newton, MA) teamed up with junior Peter Ransmeier (Concord, NH) to capture the first doubles match, 8-4. Sophomores Adam Leibsohn (Mission Hills, KS) and Andy Tsai (Tampa, FL) took the second doubles, 8-6, to capture the doubles point for the visitors, despite an 8-6 Skidmore win in third doubles over junior David Wellner (West Hartford, CT) and sophomore Rob Feeley (Chappaqua, NY).

Wellner and Feeley made up for the doubles defeat in their singles matches, with Feeley taking the sixth-singles flight over Dan Cummings in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2, and Wellner defeating his Skidmore opponent at fifth-flight in three sets, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1. At fourth singles, Tsai defeated Jon Cern in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-4, while Leibsohn took third singles with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Chris Watson. Second singles saw Segal rebound from a 1-6 first-set loss to defeat Skidmore junior Will Crawford in three sets, 1-6, 6-2 and 7-5, while Wexler and Skidmore first-flight player James Davidson did not finish their match due to the Amherst victory.

The Jeffs also defeated Brandeis University by a 6-0 final on Tuesday, capping a two-match week that effectively concludes their fall season.
