The Bluffton College men's tennis team has opened the year on a strong note by beating Division II University of Findlay and dropping a close match to Capital University . Experience is a big advantage for the Beavers this year as the six-man team is composed of four seniors and two sophomores.
Leading the way for Bluffton early on is senior Kyle Sprunger ( Berne , Ind. / South Adam's), who has not lost a set this year in singles or doubles. Sprunger plays at No. 4 singles and has won all four sets including a 6-0, 6-0 victory against Capital. The tandem of Sprunger and senior Brad Boyles ( Berne , Ind. / South Adam's) are also undefeated in the No. 2 doubles position.
