GRIFFITH, Ind. – Playing at the Match Point Tennis and Fitness Club, the #RV Forester men’s tennis team rolled over Calumet College of St. Joseph 9-0 Saturday afternoon to improve to 2-0 this spring.

After sweeping doubles play, HU wasted little time logging the shutout as they overpowered the Crimson Wave in straight sets at all six singles spots.

“With some great practices the past few weeks, the team was able to pull off the win against a good opponent,” said Coach Kreg Eckert. “We have been working hard to cut down on our unforced errors, improve our game plan strategies and become more disciplined in our serves. 

“It is starting to pay off and even though some of the scores didn’t show it, almost every match was very close.”

Next up for the Foresters (9-6) is a trip to Alma College on Saturday.
