Ferris State Tennis wins two matches over Grand Valley State in GLIAC play

The Ferris State University men's and women's tennis squads pulled out an impressive home sweep over longtime West Michigan rival Grand Valley State on Saturday (March 30) as both teams captured home wins inside the FSU Racquet and Fitness Center in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) play.

The Bulldog women started off the day with a thrilling 4-3 triumph over the Lakers before the men came back to notch a 7-0 shutout over GVSU for the sweep.

"Wow what a day," said FSU head coach Mark Doren. "I am so impressed with both teams today. The grit and determination they showed against two very good GVSU teams was outstanding."

In the opening match, Ferris State's women's team took the first and third doubles flights for the initial point over Grand Valley State. FSU then came back in singles action and captured straight-set wins at the top three spots in the lineup, holding off a GVSU team that took the bottom three positions overall.

Ferris State improved to 9-7 overall in women's competition this year and a perfect 3-0 in the GLIAC. The win was FSU's fifth consecutive to date this campaign.

"For the women to lose 7-0 last year and come back this year and fight so hard to prove they belong at the top of the GLIAC made me so proud," said Doren. "Also. this year we've been really fortunate to get very important wins from the bottom of our lineup. Today, our 1,2,&3 singles all won to give us the win."

The Bulldog men's team emerged with doubles wins at the top two flights for the first point and then swept the singles round. Ferris State won each of the top two singles spots in three-set fashion and captured the bottom four flights in straight-sets to account for the final 7-0 margin.

With the win, the Ferris State men's team is now 12-4 on the year and also unbeaten in the GLIAC at 3-0 to date. The Bulldogs have won seven matches in a row.

"On the men's side, I challenged some of the underclassman early in the week to really look at what the GV rivalry means to the other sports on campus and to the upperclassman on our team, and show today that it means that much to them as well," Doren said. "They came out today and really showed that Bulldog fight."

The Ferris State women's team returns to competition on Saturday, April 13, facing Saginaw Valley State at home beginning at 12 p.m. (ET) in Big Rapids. Both teams then face Wayne State in a league showdown on Sunday, April 14, with the men's contest beginning at 10 a.m. (ET) and the women's match at 2 p.m. (ET) in Detroit.
