Junior Mac McAnulty and freshman Tunc Kiymaz made their spring singles debuts against Quinnipiac (0-2) and helped Harvard to a 6-1 victory by winning their respective matches. Freshman Casey MacMaster got his opportunity at the No. 1 singles spot and won his second match of the day, 6-1, 6-2, over the Bobcats' Brian Mikkelson.
