Posted on April 9th, 2022 by

SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s tennis teams swept a pair of MIAC competitors on Saturday, topping Macalester 9-0 and blanking new conference opponent St. Scholastica 9-0. With the wins, the Gusties improve to  18-10 overall and 7-0 in the MIAC.

“The guys played well today,” said Head Coach Tommy Valentini. “It was fun to be back home and to get outdoors. Against Macalester we played well in the doubles to get out to the 3-0 lead. Caleb and Josh stepped up nicely in the back end of their match to get us the sweep. In singles our guys stayed poised and handled the close moments very well. Against St. Scholastica, Neel and Daniel held their nerve at 1 doubles to get us out ahead 3-0. From there everyone was solid in singles and stuck to their gameplans. We’re thankful for the results today and look forward to continuing to improve as a group.”
