Brown, Dancu earn singles wins against Sewanee

CLAREMONTJosh Dancu (Naples, Fla.) earned his second consecutive victory at No. 1 singles and Jordan Brown (San Diego) picked up a win at No. 3 singles.

But the Occidental College men's tennis team struggled through a non-conference match against Sewanee, losing 7-2 at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Friday.

Dancu defeated Rand Jackson 6-2, 6-4 and Brown easily handled Sean Laughlin 6-1, 6-3.

"I think the Macklemore concert last night had a bit of a negative impact on our overall play," Occidental College coach Brian Newhall said. "Sewanee came to compete, and we did not bring out normal energy and focus."

Both Dancu and Brown improved to 2-1 on the season.

The Tigers are off until hosting Connecticut College on March 17 at noon.
