Men’s tennis faces tough test in New York


The No. 58 BYU men’s tennis team takes its 2–0 record on the road when it travels to New York City this weekend to face Fordham University and No. 44 Columbia University.

After two 7–0 victories against in-state rivals Utah State and Weber State last weekend the Cougars are excited about the opportunity to play these two New York Universities.

“We have a great opportunity to play Columbia, who is a very solid team,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “Fordham is a good up-and-coming team who should also pose a great challenge to our team.”

Columbia features Ashok Narayana and Max Schnur, the No. 1 doubles partnership in the Northeast region, along with Winston Lin ranked No. 44 nationally in singles. Fordham singles player Kuba Kowalski is ranked No. 110 nationally. BYU does not currently have anyone in the national rankings.

The Cougars will play Fordham Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EST and Columbia on Monday morning at 11:00 a.m. EST. Both matches will take place at Columbia University’s Dick Savitt Tennis Center.
