Men's Tennis Splits Weekend Duals
On Friday, the Blue Demons posted a clean sweep of UIC, beating the Flames 7-0 at the Lakeshore Athletic Club.
"You expect one or two nervous performances from your players in your opening match, but that just was not the case,” associate men’s tennis coach David Mullins said. “There was some very good tennis on all six courts and the guys played like they were in mid-season form."
On Saturday DePaul faced it’s first road test of the season and fell at Northwestern 5-2.
"After a slow start in the doubles, we bounced back quickly to take an early lead on four of the six singles courts,” Mullins said. :The charge was lead by seniors Mark Henderson and Sam Davidson but Northwestern did a nice job to fight back and win some tough matches in key positions. They definitely deserved the 5-2 victory.
“Overall I am extremely pleased with our weekends results,” Mullins said.
