Grant Veltman recorded his 14th doubles win against Wabash on Saturday.
Grant Veltman recorded his 14th doubles win against Wabash on Saturday.

The Big Red men's tennis team closed out the 2013 regular season with a convincing 9-0 victory over Wabash College on Saturday afternoon in Granville. With the win, Denison finishes the season with a 2-1 North Coast Athletic Conference West Division record.

DU built a 3-0 lead with a doubles sweep.  Grant Veltman and Shankar Rajupet doubled up Wade Miller and Daniel Delgado, 8-4, at the first flight, while Jackson O'Gorman-Bean and Jeffrey LoDuca easily defeated Ian Leonard and Drew Sawyer, 8-1, at No. 3 doubles.  The Little Giant tandem of Mark Troiano and Nate Koelper gave Casey Cempre and Andrew Marczak all they could handle at the second flight.  However, the DU duo prevailed with a 9-8 decision to complete the sweep.

Denison won all six singles flights in straight sets.  Cempre (6-0, 6-3), Rajupet (6-0, 6-1), Graham Gettel (6-2, 6-3) and LoDuca (6-0, 6-0) all dominated their opponents at first, fourth, fifth and sixth singles, respectively.  Veltman edged out a 7-6 decision over Delgado in the first set at No. 2 singles before posting a convincing 6-1 win in the second set.  At third singles, Marczak swept Troiano via 6-1, 7-5 scores.

Denison improves to 10-6 on the year, while Wabash falls to 15-11.  DU returns to action next weekend at the NCAC Tournament hosted by Oberlin College.  The three-day event begins on Friday.
