Bearcats blast Vikings, 9-0
MARSHALL, Mo. – The Northwest Missouri State men’s tennis squad got back on the winning track Tuesday in an impressive way, rolling past Missouri Valley 9-0 in non-conference action.
The Bearcats improved to 9-3 on the year as they continue action over the weekend against tough region foes, Arkansas-Fort Smith and Newman in Tulsa, Okla. The win also moved head coach Mark Rosewell’s career total to 895 needing just five wins to crack the coveted 900 mark.
The Bearcats swept all three doubles matches winning at No. 1 and No. 2 by identical 8-5 scores. Calvin Patterson and Jason Harris took No. 3 doubles with even more ease winning 8-0.
In singles action Northwest breezed through the Vikings lineup with only one set challenging the Bearcats. Mario Jakovljevic won at No. 2 singles, 6-0, 6-3 as the rest of the Northwest lineup moved coach Rosewell closer to win number 900.
