Coach Bruce Fleming describes last night’s CIC battle on the courts in which Mississinewa won 3-2, “On Monday, the Ole Miss Boys Tennis Team traveled to Alexandria to compete against the Tigers in a conference match.  The Indians grabbed an early lead with quick wins at #3Singles, by Paxton Sample, and #1Singles, by Isaac Torres.  After Alexandria captured the #1Doubles match and was winning the #2Doubles position, Conner Murphy was mounting a first set comeback that gave him tremendous momentum heading into the second set.  Murphy secured the team’s important 3rd point to give the Indians the victory.  Mississinewa is now 10-4 overall and 3-0 in the CIC.  Ole Miss will travel to Elwood on Wednesday for another conference matchup.”
