Men's Tennis Drops Home Finale To Royals

It was doubles troubles for Hamline's men's tennis team Tuesday at Holt Courts. The Pipers won four of their six singles matches against Bethel but lost all three doubles matches in a 5-4 setback that eliminated Hamline from the MIAC playoff chase.

David Croonquist shook off a first loss to win his No. 1 singles match in three sets. The finale was a tight 10-8 affair.

Bernard Mitambo continued his superb season with a straight set win at No. 2 singles. Sam Teitelbaum and Derek Lutz also claimed three set wins. But HU was unable to convert in doubles and took their fourth 4-5 loss of the season.

HU, now 6-10 overall, finishes its season Saturday at Concordia.
