Men’s Tennis Wins Two at Home

Posted on March 1st, 2020 by

SAINT PETER, Minn. – No. 15 Gustavus men’s tennis earned a pair of victories on Saturday at the Swanson Tennis Center. The Gusties defeated Grinnell 9-0 followed by a 6-1 win over Augustana to improve to 6-2 overall.

The guys turned in a great performance today,” Head Coach Tommy Valentini said. “Grinnell is a tough team and they played very well against us at one and three doubles. Both of our teams at those spots showed great poise and trust and to come through in very pressure-filled moments, and Micheal and Daniel gave us a big lift at number two. Once we got the 3-0 lead I thought our guys settled in and executed very well in the singles. Against Augie we showed a lot of character to bring great energy out of the gates. The guys played excellent doubles with a lot of fire to set the tone.  In the singles everyone competed very well and stuck together and supported each other right to the end. Jack Bergmeyer and Joël Hug were fantastic in every phase of the game to get the second and third points to put us in a great position and we were able to capitalize and close out the match from there. Overall we made good progress as a group today and we’re grateful to come through against two high quality opponents.”
