During spring break, the North Central College men’s and women’s tennis teams traveled to Hilton Head Island, S.C., posting perfect records, enjoying strong fan support, and spending time in one of the most pristine parts of the country.
The men’s team opened play on March 17, defeating Western New England College, 8-1, and then recorded a second 8-1 victory over Buena Vista University.
The Cardinals’ most exciting win of the trip came in a 6-3 triumph over Virginia Wesleyan College. The Marlins were nationally ranked by the NCAA and Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
North Central concluded the trip with a 8-1 rout of Frostburg State University.
Following the Cardinals’ impressive record throughout the week, Victor Krueger ‘19 was named College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) Men’s Tennis Player of the Week.
The women’s team was equally as impressive, as it, too, went undefeated throughout the trip. They opened play against Buena Vista, prevailing, 8-1. The Cardinals followed that with a dominant 7-2 victory over Virginia Wesleyan and concluded the trip with another 7-2 win, this time over Frostburg State.
On top of prospering on the court, the Cardinals stopped to practice in Nashville, Tenn., spent time at an Atlantic beach and took part in some intense games of pool basketball at their hotel.
