The Hesston College men’s tennis team enjoyed a tremendous win on Friday, March 16, as the Larks took first place at the Kansas Wesleyan University (Salina, Kan.) Tournament.

Competing against three four-year varsity tennis programs, Hesston freshmen Luis Ramirez (Tachira, Venezuela), Michael Oyer (Hesston, Kan.) and Taylor Ermoian (Hays, Kan.) each won their match at one, two and four singles, respectively.

In doubles play, Ermoian and Keenan Jensen (Hesston, Kan.), another freshman, won at two, while Oyer and Austin Loucks (Elkhart, Ind.) won at three.

“I was so proud of our team today,” said Hesston coach Jeron Baker. “Our men couldn’t have played any better in the opening round. Hesston College played in 5 of the 6 singles finals and all 3 doubles finals. On the women’s side, Erika Wedel got her first singles win of the year and Kaci Diener and Wedel recorded their first doubles win of the year. This was a huge day for our program.”
