Valparaiso’s men’s tennis team wrapped up its fall season late Friday evening with doubles action at the ITA Midwest Regional Championship held at Eck Tennis Pavilion in Notre Dame, Ind.
The duo of Jose Gaspar (Sao Paulo, Brazil/CEAD H.S.) and Chris Baum (Charlotte, N.C./Providence H.S.) fell by the score of 8-2 against the tournament’s 10th seeded team of Niall Fitzgerald and Spencer Talmadge of Notre Dame.
Kevin DeHerrera (Littleton, Colo./Chatfield H.S.) and Kyle Stump (Plymouth, Ind./Plymouth H.S.) lost their match by the same 8-2 score against Michigan State’s Ron Hulewicz and Denis Bogatov.
“We played well today,” head coach Jim Daugherty said. “However, in both matches our opponents played nearly flawless.”
Valpo will return to the courts in January to begin the championship season.
