Bulldogs pick up four wins in weekend invitationals

SMITHFIELD, R.I. -- The Bryant University men's tennis team picked up four wins in the Bryant Invitational and Bryant Senior Day Festival over the weekend. 

How it Happened (Saturday)

  • Sophomores Trent Massam (Wellington, New Zealand) and Philip Belmatch (Staten Island, N.Y.), and freshmen Andrew Forchetti (Orange, Conn.) and Alexander Schou (Holte, Denmark) competed for the Bulldogs. 
  • Massam and Belmatch dropped a pair of doubles matches, 6-3 and 6-4.
  • Forchetti and Schou lost their first match, 6-4, but rebounded to win the second doubles match, 6-1. 

How it Happened (Sunday)
