HUNTINGTON, Ind. - It looked like the long weekend at ITA Regionals was taking its toll on the HU men’s tennis team as they got off to a slow start against Spring Arbor University Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts but the Foresters eventually warmed up to take control of the contest.
After collecting two wins in doubles action, Huntington broke out of their sluggish start to win five of the six matches in singles play to notch the 7-2 win.
The Foresters improve to 5-1 in conference play, 6-2 overall.
“We have been focusing on some key elements trying to work on doubles movement and aggressiveness and also working on depth and spin for singles,” said Coach Eckert. “Overall, we are looking much better to keep posting conference wins.”
Originally slated to play Indiana Tech on Thursday, the match has been moved to this afternoon at 4:15 p.m.
