Butler men’s tennis beats University of Indianapolis

Michael Dickson winding up for a spin serve to his opponent.

The Butler men’s tennis team beat the University of Indianapolis 5-2 on Feb. 18.

Indianapolis was nationally ranked in the top 25 programs in Division II coming into the match.

Butler began the match by securing the doubles point and taking a 1-0 lead.

The combination of Adrian Mag and Aviv Ben Shabat came out victorious, as did the combination of Thomas Brennan and Spencer Lang. Mag and Shabat surrendered only one game in their win.

Mason Dragos and Ryan Roegner lost their doubles matchup, but it proved inconsequential in the best-of-three format.

Butler won four of the six singles matchups as well.

Dragos in the No. 1 spot, Brennan in the No. 2, Mag in the No. 5 and Lang in the No. 6 all came out on top.

Dragos and Brennan each needed three sets to do so. The third set – and thus, the point – in Dragos’s matchup came down to the final game, with Dragos winning the set 7-6.

Mag’s singles performance stood out, only surrendering one game in the entirety of his matchup.

The Bulldogs are now 7-4 on the season and are back in action on Feb.23 at Northern Illinois.
