RENSSELAER, Ind. – The HU men’s tennis team wrapped up the year with a 7-2 loss to St. Joseph’s College. SJC is closing its door after this academic year so Saturday’s outing was the Pumas’ last match in school history.

Brody Worl remained perfect in singles action this spring by picking up a win, 7-5, 6-0, at the #4 spot against Derek Wappel. Luke Buttermore was the other Forester to earn a point by handing Llyo Kolobykhau a 6-4, 1-6 (11-9) decision at #2 singles.

“We wrap up the spring season having gained a lot of experience by our mainly freshmen squad,” said Coach Kreg Eckert. “We now set our sights on the fall conference season which will start ramping up in a few months.”

Huntington finishes the year with a record of 9-9.
