Jared Pinsky returned to his home state and picked up a win in singles

College Park, Md. Ė The No. 40 Duke men’s tennis team concluded a 10-match road stretch with a 7-0 victory at No. 63 Maryland on Sunday in College Park, Md.

The match ended a stretch where the Blue Devils played a total of 10 matches in six different states over a span of 26 days. The total distance traveled during the road streak tallied 8,929 miles. Duke’s last home match was March 2. Sunday’s win was the second straight 7-0 win for the Blue Devils on the weekend as they also swept Boston College on Friday. With the win Duke improved to 4-2 in ACC play and 7-9 overall for the year. The Terps fall to 1-6 in the league and 9-7 overall.

Maryland native Jared Pinsky, a freshman from Potomac, Md., wrapped up the sweep for the Blue Devils. His match against Michael Coleman at the No. 6 spot was the last match to finish and he came away with a 7-6 (4), 6-3 win to improve to 3-2 in league matches and 8-9 overall.

Three other Duke players won in straight sets. No. 57 Reid Carleton finished first on the day with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over David Kwon at No. 2 in the order. He picked up his third straight win to increase his team-high win total to 21 on the season. He is now 21-7 and has a 5-1 record in ACC competition. Kiril Dimitrov played at No. 3 and defeated Boris Fetbroyt 7-6 (5), 6-0. He earned his second ACC victory of the year and is now 2-0 at the third spot in the lineup. Senior Alex Stone won 6-2, 7-5 in the No. 5 slot against Alex Aksanov. Stone is an even 3-3 in the ACC.

David Goulet and Dylan Arnould both won in three sets after picking up wins in the first set but suffering second-set losses. Goulet claimed his fifth victory over a ranked opponent with a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) win over No. 68 Amit Inbar in the top singles spot. Goulet is 5-1 in conference matches, 11-5 in dual match play and 15-6 overall. At the No. 4 position, Arnould defeated Nickolai Nielsen by a 7-6 (8-6), 3-6, 6-1 margin for his 13th win of the year in singles. He is 3-2 in league contests.

Duke started the day by winning two of the three doubles matches. Goulet and Christopher Price won easily, 8-3, against Fetbroyt and Inbar at the No. 1 position. Carleton and Dimitrov then clinched the doubles point with an 8-5 win over Aksanov and Kwon at No. 2.

The Blue Devils will play their first home in over a month on Friday when they welcome Virginia Tech to Durham to begin a stretch of five straight ACC matches to close out the regular season. The match with the Hokies is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. in Ambler Tennis Stadium.
