Oral Roberts Takes Summit League Men’s Tennis Championship

TULSA, Okla. - Third-seeded Oral Roberts (7-8) upset top-seeded UMKC (17-7), 4-2, to claim The Summit League Men's Tennis Championship Saturday evening at the Shadow Mountain Racquet Club. The victory marked the third league crown in the past four seasons for the Golden Eagles and the school's ninth men's tennis tournament title overall.

Oral Roberts gained the early advantage by claiming the doubles point behind wins from the duo of Trukshanin/Sobolta at No. 1 and the tandem of Beslic/Suslov at No. 2.

With the onset of singles play, UMKC rallied to take a 2-1 lead when Erwin Quintanilla won at No. 6 and Abdulrahman Alawadhi was victorious at No. 5.
