Coming off impressive singles play at the Stony Brook Invitational in early September, the men's tennis team kept the ball rolling at Williams last weekend. At the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Regional Championship, unseeded singles players led the way for Bowdoin.

In the singles bracket, Chris Lord '14 and Nicholas Fenichell '12 both had impressive runs and collected several victories.

Lord reached the quarterfinals with three wins, the first two of which were straight set decisions. In the third match, he eliminated the second seed in his bracket in a 6-3, 1-6 (6) decision. Lord's streak came to an end in the next round in a tense match that culminated with 6-1, 3-6 and 6-2 scores.

Fenichell earned two wins to reach the third round, while Oscar Pena '12 reached the second round with an opening-day win.

"Even though we did well at Stony Brook, we were testing the waters," said Fenichell. "This time we already had the competitive mindset."

In doubles play, Pena and Sam King '14 were the No. 2 seed. They won their first match, but then lost to a Williams team in the second round, 8-6.

Fenichell said that the team's upcoming goals are to "beat Concordia College this weekend, and to have guys on the team win the Bates Invitational, right before fall break."
