Tech falls at #26 Ferris State

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. - Andrew Freel picked up a win in singles but the Michigan Tech men's tennis team suffered a 6-1 defeat against No. 31 Ferris State Friday at FSU Racquet and Fitness Center Friday afternoon.

Freel was pushed to three tiebreakers, including a 10-point supertiebreaker for the third set before he prevailed 6-7(3), 7-6(5), 12-10 over Ayush Deswal at No. 5 singles. The Bulldogs swept doubles and received strong performances at the top of the singles lineup to hand Tech its fifth straight loss to start the year.

"Ferris State is a tough team and I thought we really tried our best to compete with them out there today," said head coach Kristin Yep. "We are continuing to learn more each match and I really see this team growing, which is very positive."

Michigan Tech (0-5, 0-1 GLIAC) plays at No. 27 Grand Valley State Saturday at 9 a.m. Ferris State (10-2, 2-0 GLIAC) continues with Lake Superior State Saturday.
