Gustavus 8, St. Catherine 1

The Gusties finished the weekend with an 8-1 win over St. Catherine University on Saturday morning.  Due to the lack of available players, the Wildcats were forced to forfeit at sixth singles and third doubles, giving Gustavus a 2-0 lead right off the bat.  The Gusties did not let it go to waste, as they extended the lead to 3-1 after splitting the remaining doubles matches.  They then swept all five remaining singles matches to capture the 8-1 win.
