USI menís tennis falls for the first time in the GLVC

University of Indianapolis 5, @University of Southern Indiana 4

The University of Southern Indiana menís tennis team suffered its first defeat in the Great Lakes Valley Conference this spring, dropping a 5-4 decision to the University of Indianapolis Friday afternoon at the USI Tennis Courts. USI falls to 8-7 overall and 6-1 in the GLVC.

The match came down to the third set of number one singles. Indianapolisí Ross Johnson defeated USIís Paulus Halim 6-4 in the third set after splitting the first two. Johnson won the first set 6-1 with Halim battling back to win the second, 7-5. The Screaming Eagles split the six singles matches, but were only able to win one of the three doubles matches.

The Eagles will resume GLVC action Saturday, April 12, at the USI Tennis Courts when they host Northern Kentucky University. The Norse entered Fridayís action at Bellarmine University as the other unbeaten team in the GLVC.
