Around the MIAA 

Adrian (8-10, 4-2)

The Adrian College men’s tennis team had four matches last week and picked up three wins on the week. The week started off with a 7-2 victory on Tuesday at Albion and was followed by a 9-0 beating of Alma. The final two matches were both decided with a score of 9-0, with the Bulldogs losing to Kalamazoo on Saturday and blanking Olivet on Sunday. AC has beaten the Comets 9-0 each time the two sides have played each other. Junior Tanner Wilcox went 3-1 in both doubles and singles play on the week while sophomore Jovanni Wagner-Payne had the same record in singles and went 1-1 in doubles.


Albion (7-7, 2-3)

Albion won two tightly contested matches to pull away for an 8-1 victory over Alma last Saturday. Albion gained a sweep of the doubles matches when Daniel McGarry and Patrick Smoker outlasted Brendan Murdie and David Suidgeest in a tiebreaker to decide the No. 3 flight. Albion won the bottom five flights in singles. Nick Kinachtchouk won a tiebreaker to decide the No. 2 slight after he split sets with Brett Reuter.


Alma (5-10, 1-4)

The men's tennis team fell in three matches it played in last week: 9-0 to Adrian and 8-1 to both Albion and Trine. Junior Brandon Ralston (Cadillac, Mich.) scored a hard-earned 7-6 [6-4], 6-2 win over Albion's Josh McGarry in Alma's only singles win of the week. He and Brett Reuter (Armada, Mich.) defeated Blake and Evan Trusty of Trine 8-2 for Alma's lone victory against the Thunder.


Calvin (10-7, 3-2)

Calvin hit the double-digit plateau in victories with wins over Bethel (Ind.) and Olivet last week. The Knights are now 10-7 overall and 3-2 in the MIAA. Calvin opened the week with a 8-1 loss at rival Hope but bounced back with an 8-1 non-conference win at Bethel. On Saturday, Calvin topped Olivet 9-0 to move into fourth place in the MIAA standings, close behind 4-2 Adrian and just ahead of 3-3 Trine. The Knights have a key conference match at Adrian on Wednesday.


Hope (8-7, 4-0)

The Hope College men's tennis team claimed two MIAA victories last week: 8-1 at home against Calvin College and 9-0 at Trine University. The Flying Dutchmen improved their record to 8-7 overall and 4-0 in MIAA play.


Kalamazoo (7-6. 4-0)

Kalamazoo swept both Olivet and Adrian to go undefeated in MIAA play this week before falling to No. 17 Gustavus Adolphus over the weekend. Casey Johnson finished the week with a 3-0 record at five singles. Johnson's three wins move his overall record to 11-6 this season while going 4-0 against MIAA competition. Following this week, Hornet tennis players are now 24-0 in MIAA singles matches and 12-0 in conference doubles matches to begin the season. The Hornets will look to stay undefeated with matches this week against Hope on Thursday and Albion Saturday.


Olivet (1-13, 0-7)

The Olivet College men's tennis team wrapped-up its season last week with 9-0 losses to Kalamazoo, Calvin and Adrian.


Trine (9-9, 3-3)

The Thunder split their competitions this weekend. They were swept by visiting Hope on Saturday, before traveling to Alma and picking up the 8-1 victory. While none of the Thunder went undefeated on the week, four different players picked up two wins in the dual against Alma.
