Men's Tennis Opens Season with Losses to Wartburg, NCC

NAPERVILLE, Illinois - The MSOE men's tennis team opened the 2019 season with a pair of losses, falling to Wartburg 7-2 and North Central 5-0 in a pair of duals late Saturday at NCC.

The Raiders (0-2) dropped their opener and then, with the lateness of hour, played to decision with the host Cardinals.

Junior Luke Nelson and freshman Alex Dam were match winners against the Knights. Playing in the No. 2 singles position, Nelson scored a 7-6, 7-6 decision. Dam, playing his first collegiate singles match, stepped right in at No. 3 and picked up a 6-3, 6-3 win.

MSOE plays its first home match of the season Sunday at 1 p.m., as it hosts Lawrence at Elite Club-River Glen.
