The Butler University men’s tennis team narrowly defeated Ball State by a score of 4-3 on April 4. The victory extends the Bulldogs’ winning streak to three.
Ben Shabat, however, redeemed himself in singles play, with a straight-set victory. Along with a point won by Spencer Lang, this tied the match at two.
The next two matchups to finish both took three sets. Mag secured a point, while Gerstein surrendered one, leaving the match tied.
Michael Dickson and Ball State’s Marko Guzina would decide the match. It came to a decisive third set, which finished 6-4, but Dickson got it done for Butler.
With their third consecutive win, Butler now stands at 12-4. The Bulldogs return to Indianapolis for an away match against IUPUI on April 6.
