Grinnell and Luther meet in the opening round of an NCAA division three tennis regional in St. Peter, Minnesota. Luther is the champion of the Iowa Conference while Grinnell is coming off another Midwest Conference championship and coach Andy Hamilton says this is a great way for the seniors to wrap up their career.
Hamilton says they’ve talked about being the first group to win four conference tournaments. Hamilton says his team had lofty goals coming into the season, knowing that the conference champion got the automatic qualifier. He says they worked hard to win the championship and to get prepared for winning the regional.
Hamilton says the conference tournament was a good tune-up for his team. He says the tournament allows you to hit a lot of balls and work in timing, which Hamilton says helps with timing and conditioning.
Luther beat Grinnell 7-2 during the regular season.
