    “We had a great team effort today,” said SIU head coach Dann Nelson. “I am happy to get our first win of the season.”

    In singles action Badr Cherradi, Rafael Cuadrillero, Jonny Rigby and Martijn Admiraal all convincingly defeated their competitors. Badr Cherradi won in No. 3 singles topping UMKC’s Connor Edwards 6-4, 6-3.
