(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) The Jeffs of Amherst (Mass.) (7-1) are on a massive tour of Southern California. In full, the fourth-ranked squad in NCAA Division III is competing in 17 matches over the course of six days: with matches against such opponents as #11 Concordia (L 5-4), Hope International (W 9-0), and fourth-ranked Vanguard (W 5-4).

On Tuesday, fifth-ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis (6-3) served as the sunny (high of 75 degrees) host to the team hailing from central Massachusetts (high of 44 degrees). Although the weather outside was warm, the Jeffs left the Warriors feeling cold, defeating the home side by a score of 6-3.

Without customary number one doubles and singles participant, eighth-ranked (ITA) Rodrigo Schaffer, unavailable due to a coaching decision, Westmont head coach Mark Basham relied on last season’s top doubles duo to provide an early spark.
