The Cyclones may be 6-1, but their latest win didn't come without a fight. They faced College of Lake County, which finished second to the Cyclones' third at last year's region tournament. Moraine Valley eked out the Lancers 5-4.
No. 1 singles player Nick Karczynski went into a third set tiebreaker for the win (6-2, 2-6, 10-4). Alex Kokoszka at No. 2 easily won two sets (6-0, 6-0) while Seth Yaeger at No. 3 battled through two tough sets for the victory (7-6, 7-5). Mateusz Marusarz at No. 6 earned the final singles match win (6-4, 6-1). David Souza at No. 4 (2-6, 1-6) and Tim Flynn at No. 5 (6-4, 1-6, 0-10) took the losses.
No 2 pair Yaeger and Souza were the key win in doubles (6-2, 7-5) to push their team ahead. No. 1 doubles Karczynski and Kokoszka lost their first regular season match over the last two seasons (2-6, 2-6), and No. 3 duo Flynn and Marusarz also fell (2-6, 2-6).
