Oct. 7, 2008

PROVIDENCE, RI - The Brown men's tennis team hosted the inaugural Bruno Classic this weekend and came away with many strong results. For the weekend, Brown won 28 of 36 total matches, including a 17-3 mark in singles action. The event, held in honor of Margaux Powers, a long-time friend and supporter of the Brown men's tennis program, brought together players from Brown, Binghamton, and Yale for all three days. Boston College joined the other three teams for Saturday and Sunday after Georgetown had to pull out of the tournament at the last minute.

In all, Brown was 16-4 against Yale, 3-1 against Boston College, and 9-3 against Binghamton. Brown was led by junior Nathaniel Gorham (Los Altos Hills, CA), who was 5-0, and freshman Andrew Yazmer (Simsbury, CT), who went 6-0 for the weekend.
