CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Bowdoin College men's tennis team lost to top-ranked Washington University on Tuesday afternoon, 7-2.

The Polar Bears fall to 1-2 this spring with the loss and will look to rebound on Friday as they compete in the Stag-Hen Invitational at Pomona-Pitzer.

Sam King contributed to both Bowdoin points in the loss, winning with Kyle Wolstencroft at #1 doubles, 8-6, before rallying in a 1-6, 7-6, 10-5 win at #3 singles. The final score was not indicative of the competition, as five of the six decisive singles matches went the distance, with Wash U claiming four three-set affairs to take the win.
