CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - DePaul men's tennis completed its weekend trip to the HEB Tournament of Champions on Saturday with a 4-1 loss to Western Michigan in the seventh-place match of the event.

With the loss, the Blue Demons drop to 3-9 overall. The Broncos went to 9-7 in dual play with the win.

Sten Leusinkwas the standout player in what was DePaul's tightest loss of the weekend - four singles matches reached a third set and one doubles contest went to a tiebreaker.

Also playing at third doubles with junior Filip Dzanko, Leusink had a hand in an 8-1 victory against the Broncos' Stephen Payne and Jim Beckwith.
