Home / News / Forester tennis overwhelms USF 9-0

HUNTINGTON, Ind. - The Forester men’s tennis team evened up its record at 2-2 Tuesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts with a 9-0 win, the hosts first sweep of the year, over the Cougars of Saint Francis. The win moves HU to 2-1 in league play.

It's Huntington’s eighth straight win over USF since 2010 when the Cougars fielded a team again. Prior to 2010, Saint Francis hadn’t had a men’s tennis program since 1978.

“We were the aggressors today,” said Coach Eckert. “When Saint Francis would go on the attack, we were able to neutralize and go quickly from defense to offense.”

Judson University is next up for HU on Friday at 4:00 p.m.
