tennis doubles team posts impressive win
Muhlenberg sophomore men’s tennis players Jordan Rutt and Zach Adler teamed up to beat a pair of ranked opponents in the Mules’ 7-2 loss to Swarthmore.
Rutt (above left) and Adler defeated the Garnet's No. 1 doubles team, which consists of players ranked 12th and 16th in the Atlantic South Region, 8-6. Already up a break, the Muhlenberg duo had the serve and a match point before the Swarthmore team came back to win the game, making the score 7-6. But Adler and Rutt came back and broke the Garnet team again to claim the win.
The Mules’ other point came at No. 6 singles, where senior Mark Apostolos won in a third-set supertiebreaker.
Swarthmore is ranked eighth in the Atlantic South and had swept Muhlenberg the previous two years.
