Michael Kennelly earned Oneonta State’s point with a 2-6, 7-6, 10-8 victory over Matt LaBarre at first singles, but the Red Dragons lost a non-conference match at home.

Kennelly’s 38th college victory came against the 18th-ranked player in the Northeast Region.

“Michael’s win today was a shining moment for him and our team,” O-State coach Lonnie Mitchel said in a release prepared by the college. “It was the best moment since I took over the program two years ago and it really galvanized us as a team. Our team has had some tough losses this year to teams that are highly ranked in our region and nationally. This type of individual win gives us something to build off of next season.”

Mackenzie Park and Matthew Richards lost tiebreakers at second and fourth singles, respectively, for the Red Dragons (6-10), who closed its regular-season home schedule.
