Men’s tennis off to fast start in conference play

Jon Mays

The men’s tennis team opened Midwest Conference play Saturday and could not have asked for a better result. The Vikings swept Beloit College with relative ease. All but one of the singles matches were decided in straight sets, and the closest doubles match was an 8-4 victory. No. 1 singles player Ryan Dunn won sets with scores of 6-4, 6-0 to claim the victory and move to 14-4 on the season. Freshman Peter Mohr won in straight sets as well while not losing a single game (6-0, 6-0).
Lawrence also played Illinois Wesleyan University Saturday with less impressive results. Dunn picked up the only victory of the day for the Vikings as they lost 8-1. Lawrence may have been more focused on their second match of the day against Beloit considering it was their first conference match. The Vikings are now 7-12 overall on the year and 1-0 in conference play. Lawrence takes on UW-Whitewater and Ripon College in a double header at home this Saturday.
