Tennis looks ahead as fall ends


Though the fall season just ended, the Baldwin Wallace Yellow Jackets already have their eyes on next spring’s tennis schedule.

The Men’s team wrapped up the fall season competing in the ITA Central Region Championships in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The team was led by senior All-OAC Jake Elbin who was 1-2 in singles play, with his win coming against fellow Yellow Jacket Trey Kernan.
