HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth men’s tennis team dropped its Ivy League home opener on Saturday, losing, 5-2, to Cornell at the Boss Tennis Center and Gordon Pavilion.

The loss snapped a two match winning streak for the Big Green (8-6, 0-1), while the Big Red (12-5, 1-1) picked up their first Ivy win of 2013.

In doubles action, Cornell took two of the three matches to secure the point. The duo of Xander Centenari and Brandon DeBot won their match, 8-2, at No. 1 for the Big Green. At No. 2 and No. 3, the Big Red scored 9-7 victories to take the edge heading into singles play.

In singles action, Centenari won his match at No. 1 in straight sets and Brendan Tannenbaum earned the other point for Dartmouth winning at No. 6 in straight sets as well.

The Big Green wrap up a weekend of Ivy action tomorrow, April 7, as they host Columbia. The match is set to begin at 2:00 p.m.
