The Hesston men’s tennis team fell 9-0 to Cowley College on Monday afternoon at Hesston High School.

The Larks (4-11) were unable to keep the momentum going after a solid showing last week against Central Christian College which the Larks defeated 8-1. The Tigers, coming into the match ranked #9 in the nation, proved to be too tough for the Larks. “It was a tough match against a top 10 team, but we competed,” Head Coach Chance Joost commented.

Freshman Nadeem Jaber (Jaljulia, Israel) Hesston’s #1 singles player, fell 6-2, 6-2 as did #2 singles sophomore Riley Kingsley (North Newton, Kan.). Freshman Garrett Roth (Hesston, Kan.) and Kingsley put up a fight in doubles play, dropping a 8-4 decision.

Next up – the Larks will be back in action on Saturday, April 15, when they host Iowa Central Community College at 10 a.m. before taking on Southwestern Christian University at 4 p.m.
