Dancu, Tigers Fall at Chapman

LOS ANGELESJosh Dancu and the Occidental men's tennis team suffered a small setback against Chapman on Saturday, losing 6-3.

Dancu, who had just been ranked No. 8 in the West Region, lost to Justin Thompson, 7-5, 6-4. If the Oxy No. 1 is going to keep his ranking and maintain that cutoff spot for the National Tournament he likely needs to pick up a win against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps or Pomona-Pitzer this weekend.

Avery Chernin and Jeremy Kirchoff won at No. 5-6 sinlges. Oxy's third point came from Dancu and Eric Kazangian at No. 1 doubles.
