Merrimack College opened the NCAA Mens Tennis Tournament with a 5-1 win over Chestnut Hill to move to 15-4 on the year.

“Our team played extremely hard today to earn the win and we are looking forward to tomorrow,” said head coach Sean Tully. “For the second-straight season we will be playing for a opportunity to play in the Sweet 16 which is a great feeling but we must keep focused tomorrow in order to make that leap.”

Tomorrow at 10 a.m., the Warriors face either New York Tech or southern New Hampshire in Round 2. ...

Merrimack softball finished its 2013 campaign at 21-22-1 with a doubleheader sweep of Franklin Pierce.
