Tennis to honor seniors
MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State tennis will honor its two seniors, Calvin Patterson and Erika Leston Sunday April 1 at Frank Grube Courts when the Bearcats host MIAA rival Truman State.
Senior day for Patterson and Leston will occur before Sunday’s matches with Truman State at 2 p.m. It will be the final home match for the men while the women will have two more home matches before closing out their season.
Patterson has been a three-time All-MIAA selection and was named All-District by CoSIDA last season finishing ranked 53rd by Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA). Patterson also helped the Bearcats to a second straight MIAA Championship.
Leston is a two-time All-MIAA honoree and helped guide Northwest to an NCAA tournament appearance as a freshman. The Amona, Portugal native has went an amazing 15-3 before this season in MIAA singles action.
The Bearcats finish a road trip facing Arkansas-Fort Smith and Newman on March 30 and 31. The women have added an extra match on March 31 as they will also face Dallas Baptist. All matches will be neutral site matches at Tulsa, Okla.
