Trinity Men's Tennis Completes Trip West With Win At Chapman

Orange, Calif. - First-year Musyoka Mbithi (Orange, N.J.) won in straight sets at No. 6 singles and earned an 8-1 doubles victory at the No. 2 position with senior tri-captain Dill Ayres (Laurel Hollow, N.Y.), as the visiting Trinity College Bantams downed the Chapman University Panthers in men's tennis action this afternoon.  Trinity, ranked No. 5 in the Northeast and No. 19 in the nation, closes its spring-break trip to California with a 3-3 record, while Chapman drops to 4-7 with its third loss in a row.

Doubles came down to a tie-break battle on the No. 1 court between Chapman partners junior Dylan Tevlin and senior Alex Klein against Trinity senior tri-captain Anson McCook (Miami, Fla.) and rookie Ned Mandel (Chevy Chase, Md.). Trinity took the tiebreaker with a 9-8 victory, helping the Bantams to a 2-1 scoring edge heading into singles play.  Sophomore Kayong Lee (Villanova, Pa.) at No. 2, senior tri-captain Charles McConnell (New York, N.Y.) at No. 4, and freshman Musyoka Mbithi (Orange, N.J.) at No. 6 earned straight-set triumphs to clinch the match early for the Bantams.
