Box Score

KISSIMMEE, Fla.- A busy day of tennis action turned into a pair of victories for the Sailfish men’s tennis team on Saturday as they would go on to defeat Webber International University and Montana State University-Billings. The ‘Fish began the day with a 6-2 win over WIU before handing MSU-Billings an 8-1 loss later in the day.

The pair of wins for the Sailfish improve their record to 5-5 overall with a week-long trip to the Orlando, Fla. area on deck for Palm Beach Atlantic as they will take on a number of teams during Spring Break.

Against WIU the ‘Fish utilized a pair of doubles wins by the tandems of Nicolas Uryson/Mark Heimberger (8-4) and Romain Nowaczyk/Nicholas Battistini (9-7) before heading into singles play.

The team then saw only No. 1-singles go the way of the Warriors as Nowaczyk and Heimberger were joined by Asti Adams and Battistini as victors.

Taking on MSU-Billings proved to be an even easier victory for the ‘Fish as they cruised to an 8-1 win.

After sweeping through doubles, the Sailfish saw wins by Uryson and Nowaczwk at the top followed by Heimberger and Adams in the middle. Matt Leeds rounded out the team’s wins with a straight sets win at No. 6-singles.

The ‘Fish will take on Aquinas College in Kissimmee, Fla. on Monday, March. 10th at 5:30 pm to begin their Spring Break tour.
