Spivey/Bescoby Earn Win at No. 2 Doubles
TOWSON, Md. — Seth Hoesman (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) was victorious and, as a result, will become the first Goucher men's tennis player to finish a season with a winning singles record since the formation of the Lanmark Conference, but the Gophers fell to Susquehanna, 6-3, this afternoon.
Hoesman improved to 11-7 in singles play on the year, taking a 6-3, 7-5 victory at No. 1 singles for the Gophers (5-13, 1-5 Landmark) over Michael Hickey.
David Spivey (Cockeysville, Md./The Park School) still has a shot at finishing above .500 as he evened his record at 9-9 with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Garrett Lynn at second singles.
Despite those two wins for the Gophers, the Crusaders (6-11, 2-5 Landmark) swept the remaining singles matches to close out the victory.
For the first time in eight matches, Goucher suffered a loss at No. 1 doubles as Hoesman and
Pat Murnin (Salt Lake City, Utah/East) fell 9-8 (7-4) to Lynn and Hickey.
Spivey and John Bescoby (San Marino, Calif./Maranatha) took care of Mats Haaland and Jeremy Neville 8-4 at No. 2.
Before the contest, Goucher honored its two seniors, Manfield and Benjamin Snyder (Forest Hills, N.Y./Townsend Harris).
