SEMINOLE, Okla. – The Concordia men’s tennis team was defeated by Seminole State College 5-0. Seminole is ranked second by ITA College Tennis in the NJCAA Div. I. The Friday morning match drops the Bulldogs to 6-6 while the Trojans improve to 8-3 on the season.

Head coach Joel Reckewey said, “The men were up against a team that is very highly ranked in the junior college division. These matches are excellent preparation for the conference matches coming up.”

The match was cut short due to limited court time. The teams started the match with singles competitions and played until one squad scored five team points. Freshman Willy Pardos was defeated in three sets in a close 6-3, 2-6, 10-6 decision.

The Concordia men’s tennis team will take a break and return to action on April 2 as it opens GPAC play. Morningside College will be the first conference opponent for the Bulldogs. The match will take place at the outdoor courts on Concordia’s campus beginning at Noon.
