After earning the doubles point, the 31st-ranked Tribe faltered in singles play and lost by a score of 5-2 against 29th-ranked conference foe Virginia Commonwealth University. The nation’s 11th-ranked doubles team of senior Colin O’Brien and junior Alex Cojanu bested VCU’s top doubles team of Arnaud Le Cloerec and Petr Olsak 8-5. Cojanu also provided the College with its only singles win, defeating Damien Lacombe 7-5, 6-3. The Tribe’s loss drops the College to the third seed in this week’s CAA Tournament and to 15-10 overall.

Assistant track and cross country coach Ed Moran, ’03, raced to a World Championships “A” standard in the 5,000-meter at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., timing 13 minutes and 20.35 seconds. Moran finished sixth in a heat comprised of both professional and collegiate athletes. Achieving the “A” standard will give Moran a spot at the IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan as long as he finishes in the top-three at this June’s USAT&F National Championships.
