It was a commanding way to open the home schedule for the Buena Vista men's tennis team on Saturday inside of the Lamberti Rec Center, as the Beavers pick up a pair of 9-0 victories, defeating Grand View and Bethany Lutheran, respectively.
Against the Vikings in the opener, BVU took all three doubles matches, surrendering a total of five points. BVU then took four of the six singles matches in straight sets before hanging on for third-set tiebreakers in both the fourth and fifth slots.
It was much of the same against BLC to close the day, as BVU won 8-4 and 8-2 in the two doubles matches before winning by default in the third.
The Beavers then secured all five singles matches in straight sets, allowing no more than three points in any set. The team also won by default in the sixth slot.
BVU improves to 5-3 on the year, matching the team's overall win total from a year ago. The team looks to add to that total when it returns to action next Saturday with home matches against both Wartburg College (9:00am) and Doane College (4:00pm).
