WINONA, Minn. – The Carleton College men’s tennis team improved to 3-0 on the season with a 7-2 victory over Carthage College in non-conference action.

Xander Zuczek (Fy./Westerly, R.I./St. Bernard) and Kevin Hurley (Sr./Novi, Mich/Univ. of Detroit Jesuit) stayed unbeaten at doubles with an 8-3 decision at the second slot, while Sahil Chhugani (So./Rochester, Minn./Century) and Jonas Lindholm-Uzzi (So./Germantown, N.Y./Red Hook) teamed up for an 8-6 victory at third doubles.

The Knights posted five victories in singles, including a 6-3, 6-1 result for Lewis White (So./Minneapolis, Minn./Breck) at the sixth slot.

“I really enjoy watching Lewis hustle on the tennis court,” said Carleton head coach Stephan Zweifel. “He is as focused as a squirrel in a dog park.”

Andrew Qi (Jr./Auckland, New Zealand/Saint Kentigern) rallied to stay unbeaten in singles, but needed to recover after dropping the opening set as he prevailed 1-6, 6-0, 1-0 (10-7) at the third spot in the lineup.

“During the first set, Andrew looked like Elvis in the final Las Vegas years of his career,” noted Zweifel. “But Andrew managed to turn things around at the start of the second set and pulled off a vintage performance.

Also winning in singles were Leo Vithoontien (Fy./Bangkok, Thailand/Bangkok Patana School), Aaron Goodman (Jr./Minneapolis, Minn./St. Louis Park), and Chhugani.

Carleton will now prepare for its annual trip to the Hawkeye State when the Knights visit Grinnel College on Saturday, Feb. 10 followed by a Sunday morning match at nationally-ranked Coe College.
