SAINT PETER, Minn. – The No. 12 Gustavus men’s tennis team Saturday shut out a pair of conference opponents, improving to 8-2 overall and 4-0 in the MIAC. The Gusties started the day with a 9-0 win over St. Olaf followed by a 9-0 victory over Hamline.

The guys played two solid matches today,” Head Coach Tommy Valentini said. “In both matches we came out with good energy and executed our plan well in the doubles to give us early leads. Our depth was key today in singles. We had 12 different guys score wins in singles and everyone competed very well and played an important role. Patrick Whaling set a great tone for us in singles tonight. He played a poised and tactically sound match, and handled the big moments beautifully and with a lot of trust to defeat an outstanding opponent with a big game in Trondson. The guys fed off of his performance tonight and everyone supported each other beautifully. We’re thankful for the results today, but more so with how they team competed overall.”
