Men's Tennis shares third in final MIAC standings

April 25, 2004
The St. Thomas men's tennis team avenged a close loss to St. John's and placed third in the MIAC Tournament, which completed a two-day run Saturday in St. Peter.

Gustavus cruised past Carleton for the championship. The Tommies, who lost 5-4 to St. John's April 16, came back Saturday to beat the Johnnies 5-3. UST was also leading the No. 5 singles match with Blair Madsen when the match was halted as UST secured the clinching point.

The Toms beat Hamline 9-0 in the first round and lost 6-0 to the Gusties in the semifinals.

Coach Terry Peck's team finished its season 15-6 and shared third place with St. John's in the final standings, which combines regular-season MIAC duals and the tournament results. UST's four Division III losses this spring included two to Gustavus and 5-4 losses to St. John's and Carleton.

The Tommies had only one senior in their top eight.
