NEWARK, N.J. - The Marist men's tennis team had their first dual match of the spring on Saturday, winning at 4-3 at NJIT. The Red Foxes won four of the six singles matches on the day.
Matt Himmelsbach (Longmeadow, Mass.), Will Reznek (Toronto, Canada), Joseph Dube (Livonia, Mich.) and Dalen Klassen (St. Louis, Mo.) all won their singles matches to give Marist enough of an advantage to defeat the Highlanders.
