XU tennis back in full swing

Robert Jamieson ~Staff Writer~

The men’s and women’s tennis teams both found success over spring break.

The men’s team came into the break with a 7-5 record but have been playing much better as of late, winning five of its last six matches. Xavier’s first match down south was against in-state rival and nationally-ranked Redhawks of Miami. Unfortunately, the Musketeers found themselves on the wrong end of a 7-0 defeat.

The men’s tennis team recovered quickly, however, with a dominant 6-1 victory over Toledo.

This past weekend Xavier opened up Big East play with a 5-2 loss at DePaul.

The women’s team came into Florida even hotter than the men’s squad.

Riding a seven match win streak, Xavier opened up play in the sunshine state with a convincing win over Davidson 6-1.

Xavier continued its winning ways with another 6-1 victory against Florida Atlantic but fell 4-3 in a close match against Toledo.
