In the Foresters' season opener, a talented Olivet Nazarene University squad knocked off HU 6-3. The Tigers immediately took charge of the match by sweeping the doubles. HU picked up its three wins in singles with Tyler Moore winning 6-2, 7-5 at #1, Gonzalo Vivas earning an exciting three-set victory 6-1, 5-7, 6-1 at #2 and Mitchell McDonald getting the come-from-behind win 6-7, 6-0, 6-2 at #3.
"We had first match jitters, especially in doubles as we started out slowly and could not recover," said Coach Turner. "I was especially pleased with our top three players. Olivet has always been a very strong team and we played well."
