ORLANDO, Fla. - Senior David Sherwood (Little Egg Harbor, N.J./Pinelands) and freshman Francis Jedlinski (Manalapan, N.J./Freehold Township) each earned double wins as the Monmouth University men's tennis team defeated Bucknell, 4-3, Monday afternoon in Orlando, Fla. With the win, the Hawks improve to 1-4 on the season, while the Bison fall to 2-4.

Jedlinski paired with Laurence Heads (Stockton-on-Tees, England/Repton School) to earn an 8-3 victory at No. 2 doubles over Kelly Morque and Josh Katten, before getting past Octavio Canibe, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 2 singles. Sherwood helped the Hawks secure the doubles points, pairing with Tom Kowalski (Westfield, N.J./Westfield) to defeat Kyle Rosen and Scott Bernstein, 8-3, at No. 3 doubles. The senior then defeated Morque, 6-1, 7-5, at No. 4 singles.

Freshman Freddy Marcinkowski (Sparta, N.J./Sparta) also took a 6-1, 6-2, victory over Gregg Cohenca at No. 1 singles to give the Hawks four points and the victory.
