Despite a 7-2 team loss, the Tandon brothers both picked up wins for the Lions. Junior Ramit Tandon defeated Neil Martin at the No.1 position in straight games 11-6, 11-4, 11-4 to remain unbeaten on the season. First-year Rishi Tandon took the victory at the No. 2 in a tough game against Yale’s Same Fenwick, 8-11, 11-7, 11-8, 911, 11-8.
