INDIANAPOLIS – The Marian men's tennis team maintained its unblemished Crossroads League record Saturday with a 5-0 victory over Goshen at the West Indy Racquet Club in Indianapolis. The Knights earned the win in a rematch of last year's Crossroads League championship.


The Knights were never threatened in doubles or singles as Danny Albert and Nathan Bogle defeated Kartikeya Sharma and Eric Zurcher, 8-0. Ian Deiters and Marty Pochop picked up an 8-2 win over Aritha Weerasinghe and Luke Rush, while Patrick Holly and Alex Wittenbaum defeated Juan Ciudad and Eric Cender by the same score.

Following the sweep in doubles, Albert defeated Sharma, 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles and Deiters defeated Cender, 6-1, 6-1. 

The win pushes Marian to 4-0 with all four wins in conference play. Marian will be back in action Sept. 13 at Bethel for a 2:30 p.m. start.
