There was no intimidation factor for the Lewis University men's tennis team, as the Flyers captured three flight championships at the Division I NKU Invitational, hosted by Northern Kentucky, at the Joyce Yeager Tennis Complex on Saturday (Sept. 14) afternoon.
Lewis junior Armand Levandi (Tallinn, Estonia/Audentese Spordigumnaasiumi) won the Flight One singles title with a 6-0, 7-6 (4) triumph over Northern Kentucky's Mate Virag. Levandi's classmate Erik Aunapuu (Tallinn, Estonia/Audentese Spordigumnaasiumi) rolled past Southern Indiana's Jack Joyce, 6-3, 6-1, for the Flight Two singles championship. Flyer freshman Mate Srdanovic completed the trifecta for Lewis with the 6-3, 5-7, 10-6 marathon win over IPFW's Andres Cobos.Â
"We played better, more complete matches today," Lewis head men's tennis coach Brett Bridel said. "I am proud of their effort and determination."
Lewis returns to action on Friday (Sept. 20), as they head to Grand Rapids, Mich., to participate in the ITA Midwest Regional.
