Men’s tennis dominates court

Stephen Exarhos

The Lawrence University men’s
tennis team faced two in-conference
opponents in two days last
weekend, and crushed them both.
They first faced Ripon College
on the road Saturday and breezed
their way to a 9-0 sweep of the
Red Hawks for the second straight
Senior Ryan Dunn, sophomore
Peter Mohr and freshman
Jason Dunn lost a combined three
games between them in the singles
matches, and the remaining three
singles matches weren’t exactly
The doubles matches were also
easily won by each of the three
Lawrence pairs by scores of 8-3,
8-2 and 8-4 in first, second and
third doubles respectively.
On Sunday, the Vikings somehow
managed to improve upon
Saturday’s performance, sweeping
the Buccaneers 9-0.
Because Beloit did not field
a full team, Lawrence won one
singles and one doubles match by
forfeit. In the seven matches that
were played, the Vikings lost a
total of one game.
Four of the five singles matches
were won by scores of 6-0, 6-0,
and both of the doubles matches
were won 8-0. With these two wins,
the Vikings have improved to 2-0
in the Midwest Conference’s North
Division and 13-8 overall.
The team next hosts Carroll
University (10-6, 2-0 MWC) at 4
p.m. Friday and travels to De Pere
to face St. Norbert (11-17, 2-0
MWC) Sunday.
