2015 Men’s National Team Championships: Day 2 Morning Report


Hartford, CT — This morning’s action featured a number of consolation semifinals.

A Division (Potter Cup): The A Division semifinals are scheduled for later today.

B Division (Hoehn Cup): George Washington has been on the B/C bubble for years, and 2015 marks the first year the Colonials have made it into the B Division. This morning the Colonials earned their first Hoehn Cup win, and it was a close one. The Colonials were tied 3-3 with Navy going into the final flight of matches. GW won the first two matches on court in the flight to capture the match. Bates and Williams have been locked in a marathon match in the other consolation semifinal, and their match is overlapping with the start of play in the B Division main draw.

C Division (Summers Cup): In the consolation semifinals, Bowdoin clinched early over Hobart. Colby College rebounded from a close loss to Wesleyan yesterday by winning a very competitive match over Amherst.

D Division (Conroy Cup): The D Division matches are scheduled for this afternoon and evening.

E Division: (Chaffee Cup): Johns Hopkins and Fordham played yesterday evening, and the Blue Jays won 8-1. This morning, Haverford defeated Lehigh 7-2 in the consolation semifinals.

F Division (Serues Cup): Bryant notched one of the first wins of the day in the consolation semifinals, defeating Davidson 8-1.

G Division (Hawthorn Cup): Minnesota swept Siena in the Hawthorn Cup consolation semifinals. The other H Division matches were scheduled for late morning.

H Division: Yesterday evening, Vassar defeated Ithaca, and Bard defeated Oregon. This morning, round robin play continued with Vanderbilt beating Oregon 4-2. (Oregon is competing as an Emerging Team and only has five players, and several H Division teams have fewer than nine players, which is why some of the results in this division are for fewer than nine matches.)
