For Georgetown’s men’s tennis team, 4+1 equaled a 4-1 loss.

Georgetown’s men’s tennis team opened its spring season with a 4-1 loss to Navy in the Navy 4+1 Invitational last Saturday in Severna Park, Md.

Sophomore Marc Lohser had the Hoyas’ lone victory, 6-7 (7-3), 6-1, 6-3. Freshman Dennis Cravedi lost in three sets and junior Andre Benjamin lost in a second set tiebreaker 6-3, 7-6 (8-6).

“We did everything we practice,” Head Coach Rich Bausch said. “They just hit the ball harder than we can. They get the ball in consistently – it’s hard to get control of points. Even if we hit a good serve, they hit it back harder.”

The men next play Maryland on Feb. 18.

The women’s tennis team started off it spring season with a narrow 4-3 loss to George Mason last Friday and a 7-0 defeat to aryland on Sunday.

Against George Mason Friday afternoon, the Georgetown women won all three of their doubles matches against the Patriots behind the tandems of freshman Jordan Botjer and senior Julie Hom at first doubles, junior Caroline Marshall and sophomore Hadley Muckerman at second doubles and freshman Lara Madonia and sophomore Meredith Bumpass at third doubles.

Marshall (No. 1) and senior Lindsey Manwell (No. 6) accounted for the two singles wins.
