Jojo Sandoz led a junior-heavy line-up for the Jesuit tennis team to a 7-0 victory over a strong Newman squad on Thursday, March 21 at the UNO Tennis Center. Sandoz won 8-3 at Line 1 singles, and then teamed up with junior Sid Trouard to take an 8-6 win at Line 1 doubles. Trouard also picked up a singles win on Line 2 (8-2) as did juniors James Henican on Line 3 (8-2) and Tom Levy on Line 4 (8-0). The Greenies tried to sneak a win in doubles by playing their strongest team on Line 2, but Henican and sophomore Nick Crockens were having none of it. They rose to the occasion with an 8-6 win. Levy and junior Wes Melito picked up the win on Line 3 (8-3).

Earlier in the week, the Jays pitched another shutout, this time at the Holy Cross Tigers. Notching singles wins were senior David Nimmo on Line 1 (8-2), junior Luke Russo on Line 2 (8-1), sophomore Keating Landry on Line 3 (8-1), and sophomore James Bostick on Line 4 (8-0). In doubles, the Jays didn’t drop a single game. Line 1 (Nimmo/Levy), Line 2 (Russo/William Bostick), and Line 3 (Landry/James Bostick) all won by 8-0 scores.
