The ORU tennis team, led by Coaches Mark Milner and Dario Beslic, typed a few more victories into the ORU record book and rewrote a little piece of school history with their three match win streak.
The last time the ORU men’s tennis team won three matches in a row was in 2009. They were led by Alex Kotsuik, who was both Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year in the Summit Conference.
This year, ORU has won three matches in a row two different times and have a Southland Player of the Week in freshman Michael Sosnowski.
Coach Milner said the win streak has given the team confidence for the remainder of the season.
“Winning three matches in a row feels great. It was a result of hard work and perseverance from all of the guys,” Milner said. “It’s been a great confidence booster going into the last half of the season, and we hope to finish it strong.”
After winning six out of their last seven matches, Coach Milner and all the players are confident and ready to finish this season on a high note.
“This season has been one of the best in ORU’s history,” said transfer junior Jack Busby. “We have the best schedule and one of the best coaches in the country and we all train really hard. All that coaching and hard work has paid off.”
On April 12, the ORU men’s tennis team is going to face Incarnate Word. On April 13, they are playing against Tulsa.
“Right now… we, as a team, need to focus on this season and give our best in these last couple matches,” Sosnowski said. “We have started writing the history, and we want to keep doing that.”
