INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Crossroads League Champion and #RV Men's Tennis team improved to 16-9 on the season yesterday as they dominated Division 3 Hanover College 9-0 after rainy weather forced the match to move indoors to West Indy Racquet Club.

Marian got off to a quick start, taking all three doubles matches. Seniors Jack Hiatt and Taylor Kinney played their last regular season doubles match as Knights, and took their match at three doubles by a score of 8-2. Then, freshman Alex Wittenbaum and junior Danny Albert clinched a quick 8-1 win.


With the Knights up two-zero, senior Jason Denton and junior Marty Pochop fought off match points to win at first doubles, 9-8 (4).


The Knights continued their strong performance in singles play. Wittenbaum snagged a quick 6-1,6-0 win at six singles. Shortly afterwards, fellow freshman Nathan Bogle defeated a tough opponent at four singles, 6-3,6-1.


Hiatt won 6-1, 6-0 and Albert won 6-1, 6-2 continuing their winning ways by clinching their matches at third and fifth singles. Pochop won 6-3, 6-2 and Denton won 6-1, 6-1 to put a stamp on the match at second and first singles.


Now, for the next two weeks, they will partake in training to prepare for the NAIA National Tournament May 17th in Mobile, Alabama.
