Men's Tennis spring trip #4

Rexford Shield of the men's tennis team is keeping a running diary of the Eagle men's and women's tennis team trip to Hilton Head, S.C...

Wake-up call was at 7:00 am for the women and 7:30 am for the men. The women had their first match of the trip at 8 am against the College of Wooster. After the women took 2 out of the 3 doubles matches, they came up short in the singles matches with 4 of them being decided in the 3rd set tiebreaker and lost the overall match 5-4. The men played Gordon College at 1 pm and lost 8-1. No. 3 singles player, Max Divelbiss, registered the lone win for the men by dominating 6-1, 6-0.

A lot of us were too tough to put on sun tan lotion and we paid for it by being sun burnt. For dinner, Cody, Max, Clint, and Vince cooked the traditional American barbeque of burgers, hot dogs, and grilled chicken. We pretty much stuffed our face with as much food as we could tolerate and it ended up successful. The men then tossed the football around at the beach while Coach and the women stayed at the house and watched Iron Chef.

Tomorrow, both the women and the men don't play until 3 pm so we will be able to sleep in, get a good breakfast, and come out ready to go. Weather forecast for tomorrow will be a high of 79. I definitely don't miss the Wisconsin weather. Go Eagles!
