GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College's men's tennis team cruised to a 9-0 win over Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC)-rival Ferrum College Saturday. The Quakers evened their record at 1-1 (1-1 ODAC). Ferrum fell to 1-3 (1-3 ODAC). The match was played indoors at Piedmont Indoor Tennis due to rain.

The Quakers swept all three doubles contests and did not lose a game in the process. Mason Robb and Elijah Gregory won at first doubles, 8-0, over Riley Kern and Houston Murphy. Joe Horne and Jay Montague won by the same margin at second doubles over Patrick Marsh and Jacob Glass. Guilford's Kai Glass and Tim Thompson blanked David Bishop and Andrew Meadows at third doubles, 8-0.

The singles ladder saw much of the same as the Quakers dropped just two games. Robb downed Kern, 6-0, 6-1, at first singles and Horne topped Marsh at third singles by the same score. Gregory blanked Bishop at second singles, 6-0, 6-0. Montague defeated Murphy at fourth singles by the same score and Glass shutout Meadows, 8-0, at sixth singles.
