Fahr won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 5 singles while Vroon claimed a default win at No. 6 singles as Wisconsin-Lutheran did not have an available player to fill the flight.

"We had a couple of nice wins today," said Calvin men's head tennis coach John Ross. "I thought our doubles play was the key today. It helped set the tone in both matches and gave us momentum going into singles. We've also picked up good momentum for our team heading into spring break in two weeks."

Calvin's spring break tour to Orlando, Florida, is scheduled to begin on March 20 with the Knights slated to play four non-conference matches during the stretch.
