The men played against MIT last Friday and were thoroughly outclassed 9-0 by the Engineers, currently ranked 22nd in the country. Regardless, there were strong performances from a number of new faces on the ladder with Ben Rush and Alexander Jafry having strong performances against their opponents. Freshmen Ben Rush gave his opponent a tough time with some well placed shots throughout his games. Freshmen Ian Hay, starting at number 2 for the team, also played really well but was just outclassed by his opponent, losing in 3 games. Despite losing, Alexander Jafry, a second year transfer from Colby College, showed some disciplined hitting in his games and rounded up some good performances from a lot of the newcomers on the team. Team captain Karan Kishorepuria continued his strong performances from last year by forcing a deuce in one of his games in one of the best performances from the team. The team travels to Harvard on Wednesday to take on yet another tough team in what will be a tough stretch of fixtures for the team.
