Almost Perfect

03/08/2013 – The ninth ranked men's tennis team won five of their six matches in spring break action from Orlando, Florida.

Victories over Division I, St. Joseph, and a 6-3 verdict over NAIA foe Olivet Nazarene closed a successful week for the Saints. The only blemish on their slate was a midweek setback to #24 Bethel (Tenn.). Aquinas was paced by the perfect weeks turned in by Andy Struble (5-0) and Kyle Masteller (4-0) in singles play. The All-American duo of Aaron Hendrick and Nik Artaev went 5-1, while Frankie Fischer and Brendan Petz shared a matching 5-1 mark.

The Saints will now switch their attention to a date with Grand Valley State in Allendale on Friday at 6 p.m.
