Players from the Havard men's tennis team went a combined 8-4 in singles play and 4-1 in doubles competition at the William and Mary Invitational this past weekend. Alex Steinroeder once again led the Crimson finishing 2-0 in the singles flight while teaming with Alistair Felton and earned a 2-0 in doubles action.

Three other Crimson competitors joined Steinroeder in the undefeated category as Henry Steer, Denis Nguyen and Felton posted a sterling 5-0 record. Senior captain Davis Mangham also recorded a singles-competition victory going 1-1 during the tournament.

Doubles competition continued to be a strong suit for Harvard as the team of Steinroeder and Felton and Nguyen and Andy Nguyen were strong once again going 4-0 in their doubles matches. On the first day of doubles action, Felton and Steinroeder defeated the William and Mary tandem of Ilja Orrie and Robert Pietrucha 8-3, while "team Nguyen" defeated W&M John Banks and Jacob Braig 8-5. Harvard doubles teams continued that success on Sunday as Felton and Steinroeder downed Banks and Braig 8-6 while Andy and Denis Nguyen beat W&M pair of Charlie Ghirskey and Adrian Vodislav 8-6. 

This tournament concluded Harvard's fall season. The Crimson will be back in action again upon the opening of its spring schedule.
