Andrew Marczak (L) and Casey Cempre won their doubles draw at Kenyon.

The Denison men's tennis team opened its 2013 fall season at the Kenyon Invitational this past weekend in Gambier, Ohio.  As a team, the Big Red went 12-5 in doubles matches and 24-13 in singles play.

Senior Andrew Marczak and junior Casey Cempre won their doubles draw after stringing together four-consecutive victories over the two-day tournament. The DU tandem opened doubles play with an 8-2 decision over Case Western's Kevin Dong and Joshua Dughi.  Marczak and Cempre followed that up with an 8-3 victory over Alexander Hurtuk and Charlie Murphy of Allegheny.  In the semifinals, the duo faced off against teammates Ryan Bibo and Ben Short.  The veterans knocked off the rookies via 8-3 score, punching their ticket for the finals.  In the championship match, Marczak and Cempre met another Case Western Reserve team, Santiago Guerra and Bas van Lent.  The Big Red pairing edged the Spartan team, 9-7, to win their doubles draw and secure a 4-0 mark.

The freshmen team of Bibo and Short and the junior pairing of Shankar Rajupet and Grant Veltman both went 2-1 and earned berths in the semifinals.  Despite dropping their first match senior Juan Guerra and junior Jeffrey LoDuca rattled off three-straight wins to win the back draw in their bracket.

In singles play, sophomore Jackson O'Gorman-Bean, Bib and Short finished second in their brackets with matching 3-1 records.  Marczak and Rajupet also went 3-1 en route to winning their respective back draws.

The Big Red will wrap up the fall scheduled next weekend at the ITA Central Regional hosted by Kalamazoo College. The five-day competition will begin on Thursday, Sept. 26.
