Big sky tourney up next

The UND men’s tennis team was in action on the road this past weekend to face both Montana State and Montana. The women’s team had the weekend off with one final regular season tournament next weekend.

Montana State dealt UND a 6-1 loss Saturday afternoon. UND’s Grant Bakke was the only singles player to pick up a point. UND double players Ryan McGuigan and David Bergstrom won their match, but Montana State won the other two matches for the point. It was UND’s second to last match before the end of the season.

The men’s team’s regular season ended with the tournament in Montana as the next tournament the team will partake in is the Big Sky Conference tournament before the NCAA tournament in May. The Big Sky tournament will take place in Sacramento, California on Friday, April 25. The men’s record is 3-14 overall with conference wins over Idaho State and Southern Utah.

Women’s team

The women’s team was off this past weekend, but will take on Montana and Montana State this coming weekend in Montana. That will be the end of the regular season for the team and the next tournament will be the NCAA tournament on May 15. The women’s team record is 6-11 on the season with some big games coming against conference opponents such as Eastern Washington and Idaho State.

Both teams will finish with the NCAA tournament in May and then will be done for the season until September when the teams start up again to begin a new season.
