BABSON PARK, Mass.—Five players earned points in both singles and doubles play as Babson College opened the spring with a dominating 9-0 victory over visiting Endicott College at the Boston Sports Club on Saturday afternoon.

With the win, Babson is 1-0 on the year, while Endicott falls to 2-2 overall.

All six singles matches were decided in straight sets, starting with senior Dylan Levy's (Miami, Fla.) 6-1, 6-0 triumph at number six. De Mendiola was a 6-3, 6-0 winner at number one, while Rosenbluth cruised to a 6-2, 6-1 victory at number two.

Kolesnik won 6-4, 6-0 at number three, Levitan won a second-set tiebreaker to post a 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) victory at number four, and Gruss capped the shutout with a 6-2, 6-2 triumph at number five.
