The men’s team finished in 15th place at their Sectional Qualifier, tallying a total of 11,509 points throughout their 64 games.

Meanwhile, the Forester women just barely missed out on qualifying for the Intercollegiate Team Championship, finishing if fifth place with an overall score of 11,742.

The women’s team entered the fourth block of games holding the fourth position with 8,772 points, just 22 points ahead of Webber International’s 8,750. However, Webber International had an excellent fourth block, racking up 3,135 points in the 16 games, while Huntington posted 2,970.

The Huntington University women’s tennis team started the 2019 portion of their campaign with a 9–0 loss to Bellarmine at the Louisville Indoor Racquet Club in Kentucky on Saturday, dropping the Foresters’ season record to 9–5.
