BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The Concordia College Clippers men's tennis team defeated the University of Philadelphia, 5-1, Sunday and captured the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship for the third consecutive season.

The Clippers took an early 2-0 lead after Daniele Piludu (Cagliari, Italy) and Geza Bazula (Budapest, Hungary) won their No. 1 doubles match, 8-1, and the No. 3 doubles duo of Ricardo Frey (Curitiba, Brazil) and Jason Quintana (Holtsville, N.Y) also won.
