The MVNU tennis teams have concluded their fall seasons. The men’s tennis team finished their season with a final record of 3-10, winning their final match against Shawnee State. The women’s team finished with an overall record of 4-11, after splitting a doubleheader. They were able to defeat the Capital University Crusaders but were unable to hold onto that momentum in their final match against the College of Wooster.
Interim Head Coach Alvin Cheng is in his second season with the Cougars, and his first as head coach. Coach Cheng is very proud of his teams, and said, “We were able to defeat Capital… that had to be one of the highlights of this season. We performed beyond expectations. We won our first ever conference men’s match.” Coach Cheng believes that having a growth mindset is very important, so the teams will be participating in a strength and conditioning program during the offseason. “It allows our players to continue to grow and continue to get better."
The MVNU tennis teams will continue their season with matches over spring break. Coach Cheng is looking forward to the trip and says that the Cougars could also play “a tentative match against Wittenberg University shortly after.” The Cougar tennis teams will definitely be an exciting team to follow in the spring of 2020.
