Spartans Secure First Wins of Harry Jadun Era With Doubleheader Sweep


EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan State Spartans earned the first two wins of the Harry Jadun era, knocking off Brown and Bellarmine, 6-1 and 5-2, respectively, in a doubleheader at the MSU Indoor Tennis Center Saturday.

The Spartans move to 2-2 on the season after dropping their first two duals to ranked opponents last week. MSU handed Brown (1-1, 0-0 Ivy League) its first loss of the season, while Bellarmine drops to 0-3 on the year (0-0 ASUN). 

Michigan State started the afternoon strong against Brown with bookended doubles wins to take an early 1-0 lead. The opening point came down to the wire as Reed Crocker and Anthony Pero picked up their first doubles win, defeating Niraj Komatineni and Chun Lam, 6-4, to start off the dual at No. 2, while moments later, MSU’s pairing of Graydon Lair and Max Sheldon fell to Alex Finkelstein and Noah Hernandez, 6-3, at the No. 1 position. The Spartans took the point after senior Kazuki Matsuno and freshman David Saye defeated Brown’s Zander Bravo and Sam Feldman 6-4 at No. 3 doubles.
