GAMBIER, Ohio -- Denison men's tennis traveled to Gambier, Ohio on Wednesday evening and fell to No. 19 Kenyon College by a score of 9-0 at KC's Jasper Tennis Center.

In doubles play, it was all Lords to begin the match as Austin Diehl and Jacob Zalenski took the first victory of the night in No. 2 doubles, defeating Denison's Vlad Rotnov and Mitchell Thai, 8-3. In No. 1 doubles, Kevin Brown and Jamie McDonald were edged by Weston Noall and Alex Rieger, 8-6, while Blake Burstein and Patrick McGuigan fell to Michael Liu and Bryan Yoshino, 8-5, in the final doubles match.

Despite the Big Red forcing three tiebreaker sets in singles action, Kenyon finished the sweep with six consecutive singles victories. In No. 3 singles, McDonald was able to take the first set over Nicholas Paolucci, 7-6 (7-4), but then dropped the match in the final two sets, 3-6, 10-2. In No. 1 play, Rotnov forced a tiebreaker in the first set but was unable to hang on as Zalenski took the match, 7-6 (7-4), 6-1. The win moves Kenyon to 12-3 overall, while DU drops to 6-3 in dual season play.

Denison will stay on the road this weekend as they head west to take on Missouri Baptist University in Creve Coeur, Mo. on Friday, April 6 at 8 p.m. central, and then will match up with No. 10 Washington University of St. Louis (Mo.) on Saturday, April 7 at 1 p.m. central in Belleville, Ill. at the Kings Point Sports Club.
