Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University men's tennis team suffered its first loss of the year as the Bulldogs dropped a 5-2 decision to NCAA Division I Toledo on Sunday (Feb. 27) afternoon in Toledo, Ohio.
The Rockets won four of the six singles flights and swept the doubles round, which counted as a single point in the team score per NCAA-I regulations.
Ferris State's lone wins came from Steven Roberts and Tyler Marengo at the third and sixth spots, respectively.
Three of the six singles matchups went to three sets and all three doubles contests were relatively close as well.
The loss dropped the Bulldogs to 2-1 overall this campaign. Meanwhile, Toledo improved to 10-7 overall with the triumph.
