GOSHEN, Ind.- Tuesday night the Goshen College Men's Tennis team added another conference win to their board as they defeated the Bethel Pilots 9-0 on Goshen's home court.
This win concluded Crossroads League regular-season play. They are ensured a spot in the postseason team tournament, but final seeding and opponent will not be known until later in the week when the rest of conference play is completed.
Krishnan Ganesan of the Leafs took his confidence from his last big win (the decisive victory over Saint Joseph) and brought it to the court as he defeated Mason Heller of the Pilots without dropping a single game. Another big victory for the Leafs was number 1 singles Csaba Laszlo with his fifth-straight victory - after tonight's win - over the Pilot's number one Ethan Turner 6-0, 6-1.
Head Coach Stan King was impressed with is teams performance after the match and said, "a win feels good, and a conference win is special. With Bethel having one of its most inexperienced team in years, our challenge as a team was to stay focused and play well. And we did that, taking every match-up with a pretty lopsided score."
The men's team plays again tomorrow, Wednesday, at the Goshen College Tennis Complex against Trine University at 3:30 p.m. The Leafs now stand at 4-6 overall and 3-5 in the Crossroads League.
