Story first appeared in the March 5, 2015 edition of the Edinboro University Spectator.

Head tennis coach Lee Underwood admits that his squads are better playing outside than inside.

His Scots, however, were not to be stopped this past weekend, playing indoors.
The men’s and women’s tennis teams swept their matches against Lake Superior State on Friday at the Westwood Racquet Club in Erie and Le Moyne College at Gold’s Gym in Liverpool, New York, on Saturday.

The men’s team triumphed by identical 7-2 scores while the women won 5-4 over Lake Superior State and 6-3 over the Dolphins of Le Moyne.

Edinboro (3-2) is ranked third in the latest ITAA regional rankings and bounced back after a loss to West Liberty to open the spring.

“We played some pretty solid teams,” Underwood said about his men’s squad in a phone interview Sunday afternoon.
“They were dangerous. We had to play at a certain level to beat them. I thought we did well.”

Underwood put the spotlight on Vitor Albanese and Brandon Romain’s 8-6 win at #1 doubles and Anmol Sandhu’s 6-0, 6-1 win at #5 singles as two great matches against Lake Superior State.

The Lake Superior State match was the spring opener for the women’s team, who is 3-1 after the weekend and is ranked eighth in the most recent ITAA regional rankings.

A surprising result was the women’s team swept doubles against Le Moyne, an area that usually plagues the Fighting Scots.

“I was as happy as could be,” Underwood said about earning three doubles wins. “We really played well. I thought we did some things that we were working on. It was nice to see. Then we went and split singles, so I was kind of left scratching my head.”

The squads begin to make their way south. They’ll stop in West Virginia and face Bluefield State on March 6 and then hit the road again to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, for the Spring Tennis Fest. The men will have six matches and the women have five on their docket during the fest.

Knowing that these matches will be difficult, but winnable, Underwood wants to see one aspect of their game shine throughout their week in the south.

“Consistently getting better,” Underwood said. “There will be some tough matches. We will have to get used to playing outside again and we have to get some consistency right away again. We have to hit the ground running.”
