Men’s Tennis Wins Ranked Regional Match Against Kalamazoo

Posted on April 14th, 2019 by

JACKSON, Wis. – The No. 17 Gustavus men’s tennis team Sunday won a ranked regional matchup 7-2 against No. 28 Kalamazoo. The Gusties went 2-1 in doubles and then captured five singles victories to secure the match and improve to 14-7 overall. 

“It was a heck of an effort from the guys today,” Head Coach Tommy Valentini said. “We played some gutsy doubles at one and Derbani and Aney stuck to their plan at two to get us a lead. In singles the focus was excellent. It was great to get a big lift from Neel Raut at six; he came flying out of the gates; and everyone did very well to be present and gritty from there. We’re grateful for the result against a tough KZoo team and will look to build on it moving forward.”
