#8 Men’s tennis captures second consecutive GLVC title

SPRINGFIELD, Mon – It’s now back-to-back titles for UIndy men’s tennis as they make their way to the 2024 GLVC Men’s Tennis Championship! The Hounds in the title game defeated the No. 24 ranked Drury Panthers 4-0 to retain their title.

The No. 8 Greyhounds have now captured 13 GLVC titles. In addition to the conference chip, Malik Tabet earned his second consecutive GLVC Coach of the Year award as this year’s champion.

The Hounds are hot now and have won their last ten games as they look ahead to the NCAA Regional Championship.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Doubles was the start of the affair between the two teams. While number 2 was on the rankings Tom Zeuch And Matthieu Derache were at an impasse at the top of the map, it was the permanent forces at No. 2 and No. 3 to get the job done. Pedro Franca And David Simeonovthe senior and freshman combination, rolled to a 6-1 victory. Erwan Momo André And Louis Picaud had equal success, going 6-4 to put the Hounds ahead.

With a lead, Zeuch sent a message to the Panthers. The nation’s No. 1 player dropped Yaroslav Sharyy, the Panthers’ top player and No. 16 player in DII, in consecutive 6-0 sets, setting the tone for singles action.

After the GLVC Player of the Year’s dominance, it was his doubles partner, sixth-ranked Derache, who slipped past with a 6-4, 6-2 win to bring the match to a high.

The closing song, as poetic as ever, was Momo Andre. The senior from Paris, France, delivered the match’s death blow by going 6-4, 6-4, ensuring a happy trip back to Naptown for the Greyhounds.

NEXT ONE

The Hounds, who were No. 1 in the Midwest Regional Rankings this weekend, will wait to see who they welcome to the Circle City for this year’s NCAA Regionals. Stay tuned to @UIndyAthletics and UIndyAthletics.com for more information.
