  • Holy Cross swept its two dual matches this past weekend. Sophomore Connor McCann (Centerville, Mass.) finished with a team-best 2-0 record as he went 1-0 in the No. 4 singles match against Nichols and then 1-0 in the No. 6 singles match against Assumption. Every singles player came out with at least one win in singles play after the weekend as well.
  • With their two wins, the Crusaders are off to their best start since starting 3-0 in the 2004-2005 season. That team ended up going 7-12 that year.
