Clean Sweeps Put Tennis In NACC Semis

Clean Sweeps Put Tennis In NACC Semis

MSOE men's tennis has been on a tear as of late. The Raiders have won four of their last five in clean sweeps, including the past two matches against Marian and Dominican. While the seeding had already been set when the Red & White defeated Marian by the score of 9-0, it was the match the next day that really mattered.

The Raiders hosted Dominican in the first round of the NACC men's tennis tournament, with a trip to the semifinals in Madison, Wis. on the line. The Stars were clearly no match for MSOE, as the Red & White forced an early victory by the score of 5-0. The Raiders swept the doubles completion to begin the afternoon, needing only the  wins secured during the No. 1 and No. 4 matches to advance to the next round of the tournament.
