Men’s Tennis Defeats Oberlin 5-1 to Move to .500 Mark on Season
Saturday, April 14, 2012
The Calvin men’s tennis team improved to 7-7 on the year with a 5-1 victory over Oberlin College Saturday morning at the MIAA/North Coast Challenge. The match was played indoors because of inclement weather and was played to decision because of time constraints. Calvin took two of the three doubles points with juniors Preston Phillips and Philip Reinken winning 8-2 at No. 1 doubles and senior Vashan Wright and junior Jarrod Brower winning 9-8 at No. 3 doubles. Calvin then clinched the wins with victories at No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 singles. Phillips was a 6-0, 6-2 winner at No. 2 singles, Reinken a 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 winner at No. 3 singles and Peterson a 6-2, 6-4 winner at No. 4 singles. Phillips and Reinken are now 6-2 together in doubles action while Peterson upped his season singles mark to 10-5. Phillips also hit the double-digit mark for singles wins this year, improving his season mark to 10-7. Calvin is back in action on Tuesday when it travels to Adrian for a 4 p.m. match.
