BLUFFTON, OHIO - The Bluffton College men's tennis team (1-1) were defeated by Capital University in their home opener on Saturday afternoon. The match came down to the wire with Bluffton falling by the final score of 4-5.
The Beavers were able to win three of the six singles matches, but dropped two of the three doubles matches to come up short by one game. Leading the way for the Beavers was senior Kyle Sprunger (Berne, Ind./ South Adam's) who won his singles match in shutout fashion 6-0, 6-0. Sprunger also teamed up with fellow senior Brad Boyles (Berne, Ind./ South Adam's) to win the #2 doubles match 8-1. Senior Dan Wott (Clyde/ Saint Mary's) kept his #3 singles record unblemished so far this year with a 6-2, 7-5 victory, and sophomore Pete Martin (Berne, Ind./ South Adam's) chipped in with a 6-4, 6-3 victory to round out the Bluffton scoring.
