VSU Tennis Team flying high into Nationals

The Valdosta State men's tennis team followed up a 5-0 win over Florida Southern with another 5-0 victory against West Florida in the south regional final today at the VSU complex.

The Blazers won all 3 doubles matches and 2 singles matches to advance to the round of 16 in the Division II national tournament. The Blazers were runners up in last season's title game and were happy to get the win against a dangerous West Florida team.

Head coach John Hansen said "The University of Florida is one of the top teams in the country. Anytime you can beat them like we did today it was just unbelievable. I just hope we can carry it on through the rest of the season."

Senior Daniel Dueren said "Quick win for us. I'm very satisfied with the performance of the team. Now we're going to go to nationals and see what happens."

The national tournament will begin May 11 in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
