The men's team controlled the bottom of the ladder against Colby, as Cyrus Nassikas (3-0 at #7), George Cooley (3-1 at #8) and Michael DeFranco (3-0 at #9) accounted for three of Bowdoin's points against the Mules. Andrew Ward put Bowdoin on the brink with a hard-fought 3-2 win at #4 as the match came down to the #1 position. Matt Cooper battled with Colby's William McBrian, but succumbed in a 3-2 loss as Colby claimed the win.

Both teams suffered 9-0 setbacks on Saturday at Brown as the women now stand at 5-8 this winter while the men own a 1-11 record.
