Singles Wins Key To Men's Tennis Triumph Over Macalester

Bernard Mitambo and Andrew Lutz registered two wins each as Hamline's men's tennis team claimed its first MIAC victory of the season, 5-4, over Macalester Saturday. The match was held at Lakeville's indoor facility due to inclement weather.

Mitambo rolled to a 7-5, 6-0 win at No. 2 singles to improve his team leading overall mark to 12-3. Lutz had a much tougher time of it, working out a 12-10 victory in the deciding set for a three-set win at No. 3 singles. He is now 8-7 on the season.

The pair then teamed up for an 8-5 win at No. 1 doubles. David Croonquist (No. 1 singles) and Sam Teitelbaum (no. 5 singles) scored straight set wins for Hamline, which is now 6-9 overall, 1-6 in the MIAC.

Hamline hosts Bethel April 24 at Holt Courts.
