Men's Tennis Defeats Youngstown State 6-1

The Wright State men's tennis team clinched the #1 seed for next week's Horizon League Championships Saturday night with a 6-1 victory at Youngstown State.

WSU picked up the doubles point in sweeping all three matches and then won five of the six singles matches in straight sets.

It is the first #1 seed in program history and the win also allows the Raiders to clinch at least a share of the league title for the first time.  WSU won the 2000-01 Midwestern Collegiate Conference tournament title as the #2 seed, defeating #1 seed Butler in the finals.  The Raiders were MCC Tournament Runners-Up to the Bulldogs in 1999 and 2000.

Wright State (17-4, 6-0 Horizon) closes out the regular season Sunday with a 3:00 match at Cleveland State.  A win gives the Raiders the outright title while a loss would tie them with Green Bay (17-6, 6-1 Horizon) for first.  WSU, though, holds the tiebreaker for the top seed in the league tournament with a 4-3 decision over the Phoenix last week. 

Wright State will then compete in the Horizon League semifinals at 10:30 on Saturday, April 28, at North Central High School in Indianapolis, with the finals set for Sunday, April 29, at 12:30.
