Euts Head to Regional Tournament

The Eutectic tennis teams will head to Topeka, Kan., on Friday, April 24, to compete in the regional tournament for national qualification. Because the American Midwest Conference has only three schools that sponsor men’s tennis, the AMC is combined with the Heart of America Athletic Conference and the Midwest Collegiate Conference to create the tournament bid. With eight teams competing, the Eutectics are seeded eighth and will play the number-one seed, Graceland University (ranked 16th nationally), in the first round on Friday at 11:00 a.m.

The Euts are coming off a tough two-loss weekend. After suffering a 9-0 loss at AMC member Missouri Baptist University on Friday, April 17, the Euts traveled to Decatur, Ill., on Saturday, April 18. There they played NCAA Division III Millikin University, falling 9-0 to the Big Blue.

The young Eutectic team finished the regular season with a 1-12 record. With no seniors, and only one junior this year (Andy Sickley, P1), the Euts have spent the season gaining college match play experience. Four newcomers joined Sickley and the two sophomores (Blake Busch and Justin Weigal) this year to make up the Eutectic team. While not heavy on experience, the Euts do have heart. And, they will use that to their advantage when they fight for a win at the regional tournament.
