Men's Tennis Starts Season With Victory

SPRINGFIELD, OHIO -- The Trine men's tennis team started the season off right with a victory over Wittenberg University by the score of 7-2.

It looked like Trine may come out on the wrong end of the match after the completion of doubles, as they only escaped with one victory. Junior Blake Trusty (Fremont/Fremont) and senior Bryce Hernly (Indianapolis/Ben Davis) won the No. 2 doubles match by the score of 8-1.

But things changed rapidly during the singles matches where Trine swept host Wittenberg. Senior Colin Couch (Batavia, Ohio/Glen Este) had the most dominating win of the match with a 6-0, 6-2 victory in the No. 6 singles match.

In the No. 1 match, senior Victor Flynn (Grosse Point, Mich./Gross Pointe South) needed three tough sets to defeat his opponent (7-5, 1-6, 10-7). In the No. 2 match, senior Judson Quinn (Russiaville/Western) dropped the first set beforing storming back to win the match (5-7, 6-2, 10-5). Trusty followed up his doubles win with a three set victory in the No. 3 match (3-6, 7-5, 10-8).

Freshman Isaac Everitt (Scottsburg/Scottsburg) (6-2,6-2) and sophomore Jacob Weiss (Richmond/Richmond) (6-4,6-4) finished off the day by sweeping their opponents in the No. 4 and No. 5 matches.

The Thunder will look to continue their winning ways tomorrow, Sept. 10, at 10:00 a.m. when then travel to Earlham College.
