Orlando, Fla. – Clark University swept all three doubles matches and wrapped up their 2013 stay in the Sunshine State with a hard-fought 6-3 win over Ursinus College on Thursday afternoon.

The duo of Dan Stein (Newton, Mass.) and Josh Burger (Fairfield, Conn.) completed the sweep with an 8-6 decision over Tyler Arsenault and Alex Elbogen at No. 3.

Singles action, meanwhile saw Stuchin win his second straight head-to-head meeting with Angel, collecting a straight set 6-2, 6-2 win at No. 1.

Stein topped Lord at No. 2, 6-2, 6-1 and Martin had an easy time with Hope at No. 3, recording a 6-0, 6-1 triumph.
