Panthers Hold on 6-3 for GLIAC Win
Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Dominican men's tennis team earned their 3rd conference win of the season on Tuesday afternoon, withstanding a strong fight from the University of Findlay, holding on for the 6-3 win.
Doubles looked lethargic to open the match, but the Panthers battled hard to earn 2-of-3 doubles courts. Earning points for ODU was Carlos Perez (Jr./Miami, FL) and Greg Dillon (Sr./Fort Wayne, IN) on court two, 8-5, and Claude Badowski (Jr./Oundle, England) and Conrad Klank (Sr./Dayton, OH) on court three, 9-8 (4).
The Panthers started strong in singles play, winning 4-of-6 opening sets. The Oilers fought hard, making a push in the second sets, but ODU was too strong, finishing with four singles wins and the GLIAC victory. Earning points for the Black and Gold were Badowski and Dillon on courts two and three, 6-2, 6-4 and 6-3, 7-6 (4). Perez and Bobby McMahan (Sr./Dunwoody, GA) also earned wins on courts four and six, 6-3, 6-1 and 6-2, 6-0.
