Match Recap:
NORTHFIELD, Minn. (3/17/07)-- It's another annual rite of spring. Just as the temperatures start to rise, the snow starts to melt and everyone gets caught up in March Madness, the Concordia men's tennis team awakes from their sluggish season start to begin an extended winning streak.

The Cobbers used a pair of dramatic singles victories to hold off St. Olaf and edge the Oles 5-4 in a key MIAC conference match on Saturday in Northfield. Concordia won two doubles matches and a trio of singles bouts to claim their second consecutive victory and even their conference record at 2-2. The win pushes CC into a three-way tie for third place in the conference standings with St. Olaf and St. John's. The Cobbers are now 3-4 overall.

The loss for the Oles comes a day after they bettered St. John's 6-3. St. Olaf is now 2-2 in league play and 2-3 overall.

The two most dramatic wins for Concordia came from the two winningest Cobber tennis players in the past three seasons. Jordy Kamerling shook off one match point to rally for a 4-6, 6-3, 10-6 win in the super-set tiebreaker at No.1 singles and Paul Tuchscherer claimed also came from behind to claim a 4-6, 6-3, 10-7 win at the No.3 singles spot. Both victories were crucial in Concordia's second conference win of the season.

The two also combined to score a victory in the No.1 doubles match as they outlasted St. Olaf's Ian Pray and Nick Crnkovich 9-7.

The other double winner in the match for CC was junior William Wischer who teamed with Ryan Smith to record an 8-5 win at No.2 doubles and then rattled off a straight set 6-4, 6-2 victory at the No.2 singles position.

The Cobber top three singles players have now combined for six singles wins in the past two matches.

Concordia will put their two-match winning streak on the line when they square off against Martin Luther College on Sunday, Mar. 18 at 10 a.m. at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter.
