FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Francis Jedlinski (Manalapan, N.J./Freehold Township) and David Sherwood (Little Egg Harbor, N.J./Pinelands) each won at both singles and doubles to lead the Monmouth University men's tennis team past defending Northeast Conference Champion Sacred Heart, 5-2, Saturday afternoon in Fairfield. With the win, the Hawks improve to 4-9 (1-2 NEC), while the Pioneers fall to 4-9 (1-3 NEC).

Francis Jedlinski and Heads paired to defeat Chadd Sullo and Justin Pagan, 8-4, at No. 2 doubles, while Sherwood and Kowalski got past John LoPresti and Luka Bagi, 8-6, at No. 3 to stake the Hawks to a 1-0 lead with the doubles point.
