HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The Carleton College men’s tennis team improved to 11-1 on the season after taming the Allegheny College Gators by an 8-1 margin. The Knights’ second match of the day versus Goucher College was suspended by stormy weather.

Jonas Lindholm-Uzzi (So./Germantown, N.Y./Red Hook) and Leo Vithoontien (Fy./Bangkok, Thailand/Bangkok Patana School) both notched wins in singles and doubles against Allegheny. LIndholm-Uzzi remains undefeated in singles action this season after his 6-0, 6-1 triumph and improved to 9-2 in doubles thanks to an 8-2 victory with playing partner Sahil Chhugani (So./Rochester, Minn./Century).

“Jonas’ game plan can be as questionable as Fergie’s approach to the Star Spangled Banner,” noted Carleton head coach Stephan Zweifel, “but he always manages to bring the crowd to its feet.”

Vithoontien notched a 6-2, 6-2 win in singles and paired with Andrew Qi (Jr./Auckland, New Zealand/Saint Kentigern) for their 8-3 doubles triumph.

Jordon O'Kelly (Jr./Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest), Xander Zuczek (Fy./Westerly, R.I./St. Bernard), and Kevin Hurley (Sr./Novi, Mich/Univ. of Detroit Jesuit) added straight-set victories in singles play, with Carelton’s other team point coming from Aaron Goodman (Jr./Minneapolis, Minn./St. Louis Park) and Kevin Mei (Sr./Ann Arbor, Mich./Huron) in doubles.

Play against Goucher was halted as stormy weather rolled into the area. The weather front resulted in tornado watches stretching from South Carolina all the way to central Florida. The Knights and Gophers will resume action at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 22.
