MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Ball State University men's tennis team opened fall play at the 38th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic hosted by Marquette Friday at the Towne Club in Fox Point, Wis.

"Overall it was an average day," said men's tennis coach Bill Richards. "I thought our freshmen played well with Lucas Andersen and Andrew Stutz winning singles matches, Patrick Downs and Stutz also posted doubles victories.  Our doubles competition wasn't very good as a whole but we have had no chance to work on doubles this fall because of class conflicts and injuries along with illnesses and it showed today."

In singles action, both Andersen and Stutz posted victories against Marquette.  Andersen battled back to win his match 6-3, 1-0 (10-3) over Cameron Tehrani, after dropping his first set 6-1.  Stutz also had a come from behind victory against Logon Collins, he went on to claim the victory 5-7, 7-6, 1-0 (10-5).  Junior Patrick Elliott was also a winner, defeating Gleb Sklyr in straight sets, 7-6, 6-3.

The pair of Downs and Stutz was the lone doubles tandem to earn a win for the Cardinals today.  The twosome defeated Lucas Fumagalli and Steven Young of Air Force, 8-6.

The Ball State men's tennis team continues fall action at the 38th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic Saturday at 10 a.m. (EST) versus Wisconsin.
