MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Ball State men's tennis team closed out play at the 38th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic Sunday, which was hosted by Marquette.

"Our results weren't great but it was a productive weekend and a good start," said men's tennis Bill Richards.  "We are pretty thin this fall with only seven players, four of them freshmen, and the injury to Austin Smith really hurt us. But overall there were a lot of positives and a lot to build on."

In singles action Sunday, Ray Leonard picked up a victory over Andy Jackson of Air Force.  After dropping the first set, Leonard came back to defeat Jackson 4-6, 6-3, 1-0 (10-6).  True freshman Patrick Downs remained undefeated for the weekend with a straight set win over Air Force's Jack McCullers, 6-3, 6-2.

The Cardinals struggled in doubles competition for the weekend, Leonard and Patrick Elliott took a victory over Marquette home with them, along with the freshmen duo of Downs and Andrew Stutz which defeated Air Force on Friday.

The Ball State men's tennis team continues fall action Sept. 28 through Sept. 30, at the ITA All-American Pre Qualifier in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
