USI is 2-0 this fall

The University of Southern Indiana men's tennis team moved its record to 2-0 this fall with a 4-3 victory over Lipscomb University Saturday afternoon at the University of Tennessee-Martin. USIís match with UTM was cancelled due to rain.

USI started the match in good fashion, winning the doubles point by winning. Freshman Joe Epkey (Greenwood, Indiana) and junior Kyle Taylor (Veedersburg, Indiana) combined for their second win of the year at number two doubles, while senior Weston Phillips (Henderson, Kentucky) and junior Evan Luttrell (Logansport, Indiana) clinched the double point with an 8-5 victory.

In singles play, USI won the first two matches and the last match to clinch the victory. Phillips started things off for USI by winning at number one in a super tie-breaker. Epkey, who picked his first collegiate singles match victory, and Luttrell wrapped things up for the Eagles with straight set victories at number two and six.

Next up the Eagles will be the GLVC Fall Invitational Tournament in Evansville Saturday and Sunday, September 20-21. Matches will be held on the USI Tennis Courts on campus and at the Reitz High School Tennis Courts on Barker Avenue in Evansville.
