BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — It figured to be tough enough for Oklahoma Wesleyan men’s tennis team going up against No. 21-ranked McPherson College on Wednesday.

But then you add in the Eagles had only five players available and that made it even tougher.

The Bulldogs came away with a 7-0 victory as they are now 2-0 in the KCAC, winning both matches by shutouts.

The Wesleyan women forfeited to Mac, which is also 2-0.

The Bulldog teams will have a tougher test on Saturday when they host Friends University at the McPherson High Tennis Complex. The action starts at 10 a.m.
