Marquette men’s tennis swept the courts with two consecutive victories over the weekend.

The team shut out Northern Illinois 7-0 on Friday and continued the strong play by finishing off the University of Illinois-Chicago 6-1 Saturday.

Against Northern Illinois, the men took all three doubles matches to win the ever-important doubles point and put them ahead 1-0 going into singles play.

Junior Jonathan Schwerin shut out Bryant Poggensee-Wei in two sets (6-0, 6-0) earning one of the six singles wins that finished off the Huskies.

Illinois-Chicago posed little threat to the men the next day.

After winning two of three doubles matches, the men again secured the first point of the day. Marquette doused the Flames easily, with its only loss of the match at No. 5 singles.

This puts the Golden Eagles at 4-1 on the season going into their next match Friday, Feb. 11, at Michigan State.
