With Michael Piderit '12 (main photo) capturing a 6-2, 4-6, (10-4) victory at number-five singles and the team of Paul Gerdes '09 (photo insert lower right) and Matt Buckley '12 (photo insert lower left) combining for an 8-6 win at number-three doubles, Wesleyan took more team points vs. Williams than it has since the 1992-93 season. That was the last year the Cardinals took two team points from its Little Three rival. It could have been more during the match played indoors Tues., Sept. 9, as Graham Immerman '09 went three sets at number four and played with Piderit at number-two doubles, falling by a narrow 9-8 count as Williams secured the match, 7-2. The Cardinals will be back in action Thurs., Sept. 11, hosting Coast Guard.
