MTEN Defeats No. 33 Minn., No. 30 Wis.
April 23, 2017


Madison, Wis. - The Purdue men’s tennis team defeated two ranked conference opponents this weekend to close out its regular season. The Boilermakers first bested No. 33 Minnesota 4-3 Friday at the Baseline Tennis Center, and then traveled east Sunday to defeat No. 30 Wisconsin at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium by the same mark.

With the pair of wins, the team is amid a five-match win-streak and four in the Big Ten -- both season highs. Purdue head coach Pawel Gajdzik last strung four conference victories together in 2013 when the program defeated six opponents in a row. His career-high seven Big Ten wins that season also matches the team’s current mark. The Boilermakers will look break that record next week, though, when the team hosts the 2017 Big Ten Men’s Tennis Tournament. Competition begins Thursday at the Schwartz Tennis Center with the championship match scheduled for 11 a.m. ET Sunday. Purdue is expected to enter as the No. 5 seed.
