Sioux Falls, S.D. / O'Gorman

The Gustavus men's tennis team won a pair of important matches on Saturday with senior Brad Entwistle (Sioux Falls, S.D./O'Gorman) chipping in big contributions in both victories. Entwistle was 2-0 at No. 3 singles and also 2-0 at No. 2 doubles in his team's two wins. For his performance, the MIAC sports information directors honored Entwistle Tuesday with the MIAC Men's Tennis Athlete-of-the-Week award.

Entwistle's big day started by helping the Gusties score a big 7-2 nonconference win over UW-Whitewater. He was a 6-4, 6-1, winner at No. 3 singles, and helped the No. 2 doubles team pick up an 8-3 victory. Gustavus also scored a 9-0 over St. Olaf that same day in a rematch of last season's MIAC Playoff championship match. Entwistle won his No. 3 singles match against the Oles 6-3, 6-3, and his No. 2 doubles tandem again won 8-3. This season, the Gustie senior is 9-7 in singles play and 10-5 in doubles action.

The two wins on Saturday helped Gustavus get back to even at 5-5 overall, and the team is now 2-0 in conference play in its quest for a 27th-straight MIAC title. The team will try to pick up two more MIAC victories over the next 11 days as the Gusties will host Hamline on Saturday for a 10 a.m. match, then will make the trip to Moorhead, Minn., to face Concordia on March 21 at 2:30 p.m.
