Men’s Tennis No. 2 advances with 5-2 win


CHICAGO – University of Chicago men’s tennis finally joined in on the fun at XS Tennis, just north of campus, kicking off the second round of the NCAA tournament with a battle against Concordia (TX). The Tornados took the lead by a point after the doubles match, but the Maroons stormed back to take the 5-2 victory on Friday.

RESULT
Concordia (TX) – 2
No. 2 UChicago – 5

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • University of Chicago (21-1) faced some adversity early in the match as Concordia Texas (16-6) came out and made a huge effort in doubles to try to advance in the match. Their strategy worked as the Tornados were able to take first and second doubles and go up 2-1 heading into solo play.
  • Knowing they needed four out of six singles matches to take home the win and advance in the tournament, the Maroons didn’t mess around with quick wins at both five and six. They then took victory in the fourth slot before a medical retirement in the third singles spot gave them the win and took them to the next round.

WHO’S ON DECK

The Maroons will look to earn their regional win and advance to St. Louis when they take on No. 12 WashU in a third-round match. The first service of XS Tennis is scheduled for 1 p.m.
