With the new scoring rules in NCAA Division II tennis, a team's margin for error has become even smaller, particularly against talented opponents. The Charger men's tennis team went toe-to-toe with Northwood University Friday afternoon, but came up just short.
The Timberwolves won some close matches that proved to be the difference in a 5-2 win over the Chargers at the Margot V. Biermann Athletic Center. The loss drops Hillsdale to 13-8 on the season. The Chargers will wrap up their regular season Saturday at 11 a.m. vs. Cedarville on Senior Day.
Players at opposite ends of the singles lineup came up with victories for the Chargers. Charlie Adams was a 6-1, 6-4 winner at No. 1 singles, while Gabe Kazt picked up another marathon win, 6-4, 5-7, 10-2 at No. 6 singles.
