DEFIANCE, Ohio – The #RV Forester men’s tennis team opened up the spring portion of their schedule with a lopsided 7-2 win over Defiance College Saturday afternoon at the George M. Smart Center.  

Doubles play favored the Yellow Jackets as they claimed two of the three wins but it was all Huntington after that as they swept singles action in straight sets except at one spot to run away with the victory.
