The doubles team of Eric Irom and Jeremy Kaplan, plus a singles win by Justin Lempert, keyed that convincing win. A day later, on April 25, the Bulldogs scored another 6-1 win, this one over Garden City. The doubles team Justin Princer and Jake Gans scored the big win in this match. As of press time, Roslyn is riding high, at 5-1 in Conference I-B ball.
