The Bulldogs can win the GLIAC's outright crown by beating second-place Tiffin in the regular-season finale on Saturday (April 15) in Ohio.

Ferris State posted big wins in the doubles round with triumphs of 8-5, 8-2 and 8-4 at the first, second and third flights, respectively.

In singles action, the Bulldogs got a three-set win from sophomore Till Von Winning at the number one flight and took the bottom five positions all in straight-sets against the Cavaliers.

Walsh dropped to 11-11 overall and 3-5 in the GLIAC with the loss to the nation's 15th-ranked Bulldogs, who are also currently still number one in the Midwest Region.
