BALTIMORE, Md. — The fourth-ranked Middlebury College men’s tennis team on Sunday defeated host No. 10 Johns Hopkins, 5-2, in an NCAA regional final to advance to the program’s eighth straight and 18th overall elite eight appearance.
The 17-3 Panthers will head to Orlando, Fla., between May 14 and 17 for rest of the tournament. Their quarterfinal NCAA foe will be Bowdoin, the team they recently edged, 5-4, in the NESCAC title game.
On Sunday, Middlebury took a 2-1 lead with tiebreaker victories in two doubles matches. Joe Mairs and Julian Wu at No. 3 and Aidan Harris and Noah Laber at No. 1 both won by 8-7.
In singles matches, the Panthers lost at No. 2, but picked up straight-set wins from Wu at No. 4, Robby Ward at No. 5, and Neel Epstein at No. 4 to end the match.
The Panthers reached the regional final by defeating Christopher Newport on Saturday, 5-1.
