Storm Lake, Iowa
Not since 1997 had the Buena Vista men’s tennis team reached at least eight wins in a single season, but the Beavers reached that plateau on Saturday afternoon when they cruised to a convincing 8-1 Iowa Conference victory over visiting Simpson College.
BVU took control early on, winning all three doubles matches before winning five of six in singles play.
The team, which has already clinched a spot into the IIAC Team Tournament, improves to 8-6 overall (4-2 IIAC). The eight wins are the most since it went 11-2 in 1997.
The team returns to the courts on Wednesday, April 25 at Morningside College before wrapping up the regular season at home against Luther College next Sunday, April 28.
