Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Match

LAWRENCEVILLE—Both the Rider University men’s and women’s tennis teams were swept in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference match against Quinnipiac on Saturday afternoon.

For the Rider men, the doubles team of seniors Rollie Malfitano (Wenonah/Gloucester Catholic) and Nick Lubold (Carlisle, Pa./Cumberland Valley) won two games at first doubles before losing 8-2.

For the Rider women, junior Alison Noll (Monmouth Junction/South Brunswick) won four games at first singles before losing 6-1, 6-3.

“Quinnipiac was the defending Northeast Conference champions (before they joined the MAAC),” said head coach Ed Torres.  “They were superior in every position and may be the best team we’ve faced all season.  We battled and tried not to make too many errors but any mistake we did make, Quinnipiac certainly took advantage.”

The Rider men travel to Saint Peter’s on Sunday for a MAAC match.
