In their final meet of the year, the men’s tennis team secured their first victory of the season, defeating the University of Sioux Falls, 4-3.

Corey Paluch, Steve Grantz, Jeff Hughes and Matt Gill all won their singles matches against the Cougars. Paluch and Grantz teamed up in doubles to secure their second win of the match.

“(The) men beat a team that was a little better than them,” Head Coach Josh Lunak said.

Lunak said that ending the season with a victory was important for the team. He said it will help with recruiting and defeating USF showed that SDSU is probably still the best team around.
