FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Huntington men’s tennis team posted their first win of the season in convincing fashion by sweeping the University of Saint Francis 9-0 Friday afternoon at Swinney Tennis Center. The Foresters are now 1-2 overall, 1-1 in conference action.

After picking up three points in doubles action, the Foresters breezed through singles in straight sets for the lopsided win to hold the Cougars winless on the year at 0-5.
