Tough First Loss For Men's Tennis

ADRIAN, Mich. – The men's tennis team (3-1) dropped all but one match in losing for the first time this season to visiting Cornerstone University (6-2-1), 8-1, Friday afternoon.

"Give a lot of credit to Cornerstone, they are an extremely strong team and challenged us on the courts. We played well in doubles but could not close out a few of the singles matches. Playing a team of this caliber will help us in the long run and we look to build off this match as we close out the fall season," said head men's tennis coach Adam Albertsen.

The doubles team of Ryan Delacy and Spencer Georgetti won at third doubles, 9-8 (7-4). Cameron Hamilton's match at fourth singles looked promising at 2-2 in the second set, before he had to retire due to injury. Alex Amos played a thrilling match after winning the first set, 6-3, and then dropping the decisive set, 7-10. It took Jordan Verbauwhede one set to get his rhythm and when he did, dropped the match in a close second set, 5-7.

The team's next match is home on Friday, October 5th against Indiana University- East at 3:00 p.m.
