Men's Tennis Dominates McMurry 8-1

Men's Tennis Dominates McMurry 8-1

SHERMAN, Tex. - After more than a decade of losses to McMurry, the Austin College Men's Tennis Team defeated the WarHawks 8-1 at the Elizabeth Russell Tennis Center.

  The 'Roos swept the doubles competition with each tandem winning by at least 1 break of serve.  The success of the first half of the match would carry into the singles portion as the 'Roos would take 5 of 6 before the day's end.

  Each Kangaroo Men's Tennis Player would win in straight-set victories over their WarHawk counterparts.  Preston Glasscock had the most polarizing result of the day; taking the first set in a tiebreaker, and then earning a 6-0 bagel in the second at Line 5.

  The 8-1 team victory comes after consecutive years of 9-0 and 7-2 defeats in 2015 and 2016.

  Austin College returns for their Senior Day match against the Yellow Jackets of LeTourneau University at 3pm today.
