The men lost both matches in the dual meet (22-5, 18-9) however juniors Lowden Charles and Ben Hochberg each were able to turn aside matches were they went 3-0.

Charles went undefeated in the first match as Hochberg picked up his flawless scoring in the second match. Both men went 4-2 over the two matches and Head Coach Maka’il Sankofa felt confident that they will continue to have strong performances as the team moves further into the season.

“While our start was a bit shaky, I saw everyone put their best foot forward and I’m confident we will make improvements as we move through the season,” said Sankofa.
