GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota men’s tennis team finished its season with a 7-0 win over Southern Utah University on Sunday morning at the Choice Health and Fitness Center.

“For the first time all season we came in as the favorite and we lived up to those expectations,” junior Josh Oothoudt said. “I’m proud of our team. We battled and fought hard. It’s a good way to end the season.”

“I’m very happy with the effort the boys had all year long,” head coach Tom Wynne said.
