 The Forester men's tennis team opened its spring season with a solid 6-3 win over Cedarville University. The win evens the men's overall record at 7-7 on the year.

Despite playing in cold and windy conditions, HU was able to split the singles and then swept the doubles' matches to get the win. The top four singles matches all went three sets. Leading the way for the Foresters was senior co-captain Tyler Moore who pulled out a tough three-setter 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 at #1. Moore then teamed with Gonzalo Vivas to win handily at #1 doubles 8-1.

Adam Widener and Matt Cable were the other two double winners on the day. Widener won 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 at #4 singles and then paired with Mitchell McDonald for the 8-5 victory at #2 doubles. Cable won 6-3, 6-4 at #6 singles and then pulled out the 9-7 win with Keaton McDonald at #3 doubles.

"We played extremely well for our first spring match," said Coach Turner. "I was pleased with our level of consistency. The weather made it tough for both teams but we seemed to handle the wind a little better."
