Men's Tennis falls to St. Scholastica

GLENDALE, Wis. – Concordia University Wisconsin men's tennis dropped a non-conference contest against the College of St. Scholastica, 6-3, Friday night at the Paley Tennis Center.

CUW won two singles matches and one in doubles play as the three victories were the highest this season in its difficult non-conference schedule. The No. 1 doubles team of Taylor Shaffer (Stoughton, Wis.) and Skip Turner (Eau Claire, Wis.) were dominant in their 8-1 victory over the Saints top duo.

Turner also gained a victory in his singles match as he defeated James Mack of CSS at No. 2 singles. Also netting a win in singles play for the Falcons was Russell Johnson (Monticello, Wis.) at No. 1 singles, who won his second singles match in as many weeks, with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over the Saint's Josh Stainer.

The Saints (6-0) took the remaining four singles matches and two of three in doubles play to earn the 6-3 victory.

CUW (0-4) will host the University of Dubuque next Friday night at the Paley Tennis Center at 7 p.m.
