KEARNEY, Neb. – Concordia’s men’s tennis team suffered a 9-0 defeat to the University of Nebraska Kearney. The Lopers are ranked third in their region in the NCAA Division II.

The Bulldogs are now 7-10 this year while the Lopers improve to 17-2.

Head coach Joel Reckewey said, “The men had a really tough match against a seasoned opponent. We had some chances to get some sets but just came up short against them. We know going to Kearney that they are a higher division so it’s a match we like to play to give us good experience.”

The No. 1 doubles pair of Willy Pardos and Javier Moreno and No. 2 pair of Thomas Greef and Gabriel Poling were both defeated 8-3. The No. 3 doubles team made up of Patricio Esquivel and Philip Yox lost their match, 8-5.
