ALMA, Mich. – The #RV Forester men’s tennis team suffered its first loss of the spring, a 7-2 decision to Alma College (3-4), Saturday morning at Stone Recreation Center. The loss drops HU to 2-1 in spring action, 9-7 overall.

In light of playing on a fast surface with tough lighting, Coach Kreg Eckert remained positive about his team’s play. “The team couldn’t get any rhythm or momentum as a team but it was a good chance to play on a different type surface. It also allowed everybody to get a chance to try and adjust their games, but Alma proved to good and never let off the pressure.”

Huntington has a few weeks off before jumping back into action on March 30 when they host Indiana Tech at 4:30 p.m.
