Oxy men's tennis beats Chapman to end regular season

LOS ANGELES — Led by Stephen Perkins (Seattle, Wash.) and Jordan Brown (San Diego), the Occidental College men's tennis team finished the regular season with a convincing 8-1 over Chapman at Scholl Canyon on Sunday.

Perkins beat Kyle Coates at No. 2 singles 6-1, 6-0 and Brown beat Brett Buford 6-1, 6-0.

"We played some of our best tennis of the year. It was the final home match for Perkins and Brown," Oxy coach Brian Newhall said. "Everyone brought their "A GAME" for singles in a 6-0 sweep."
