Men’s Tennis Sweeps Three Matches

Posted on March 3rd, 2018 by

ST. PETER, NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The No. 10-ranked Gustavus men’s tennis team went 3-0 Saturday as a split squad, winning all three matches by 9-0 decisions. The Gusties defeated Concordia-Moorhead and Northwestern-St. Paul at the Swanson Tennis Center, and beat St. Olaf in Northfield. The wins improve the Gusties to 9-4 overall and 3-0 in the MIAC.

“The guys competed well today,” Head Coach Tommy Valentini said. “In the Concordia match both Gabe Steinwand and Zeke Haugen showed excellent poise to come through in some challenging moments to give us a lift. Against St. Olaf our freshmen team of Alhouni and Hiquiana came through with a great win to give us a doubles sweep and a lot of momentum. All three doubles teams were great against UNW to again put us in a great position. The guys stuck together and competed hard all day. We feel like we made good progress and we’ll look forward to coming out and continuing to improve this week.”
