Purdue Northwest passes Michigan Tech 5-2

HAMMOND, Ind. — Vitor Jordao came from a set down to win at No. 1 singles, but recent struggles for Michigan Tech men’s tennis continued with a 5-2 loss at Purdue Northwest Saturday at Park Forest Tennis Club. The Huskies lost a pair of three-setters in singles and fell to 0-3 in GLIAC play (0-11 overall).

Despite the loss, sophomore Adam Fenjiro found success at No. 4 singles with a convincing win over Luis Alvear 7-5, 6-2, his first singles victory of the spring.

“Our guys had a really tough match today,” said head coach Kristin D’Agostini-Yep. “The competition was good but emotions were very high for both teams.”

The Huskies have three conference matches remaining in the regular season with the GLIAC quarterfinals set for April 21.

Tech hosts defending Division II national runner-up No. 10 ranked Wayne State at Gates Tennis Center on Saturday, April 1 at 10 a.m.
