Cyclones tennis team keeps on rolling
As the 2014 tennis season nears its end, Moraine Valley College’s fun may only be starting.
For sure, there’s been plenty of enjoyment already realized, thanks to a win streak that the Cyclones extended to seven straight matches by defeating Oakton College 7-2 and Waubonsee College 8-1 in a pair of Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference encounters last week. The second of those wins guaranteed Moraine a runner-up conference finish.
An 8-1 nonconference triumph over Illinois Valley College on Friday then gave the Cyclones a final push toward the Region IV Tournament, which was slated to get underway this week. A high finish there would put Moraine back into the National Junior College Athletic Association Tournament after a one-year hiatus.
The national event will be held next month in Texas, and it’s something the Cyclones’ veteran players definitely have on their radar.
