SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s tennis teams hosted Bethany Lutheran and St. Olaf on Saturday, while also sending a group to Grand Forks to compete in a DI field against the University of North Dakota. The Gusties won 9-0 over the Vikings, 9-0 over the Oles, and fell to the Fighting Hawks 6-1.

“It was great to get our entire group out competing today,” said Head Coach Tommy Valentini. “Our depth was key for us to be able to face three opponents in three different places. Overall we put together a great team effort. We competed well and make good strides in a lot of key areas today. We’re thankful for two wins close to home, and I was proud of how we handled the moment against a quality D1 opponent at UND. We look forward to improving this week and to facing more exciting challenges next weekend.”
