Blue Raiders finished 8-0 in the MSC this season for their 10th straight title

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson men's tennis team secured the Mid-South Conference regular season title today with a 9-0 sweep of St. Catharine (Ky.) at Henry Baughman Tennis Complex.

The No. 5-ranked Blue Raiders complete the conference regular season play with an 8-0 conference mark. Lindsey Wilson secures the top seed in the MSC Tournament later this month.

Lindsey Wilson (11-2, 8-0 MSC) began the match with three points due to a pair of singles' forfeits and a doubles' forfeit. St. Catharine (0-4, 0-4 MSC) traveled with just four players forcing the three forfeits.

The Blue Raiders quickly grabbed the team win with wins at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles.

Fernando Bogajo and Franciso Charters earned the fourth point with an 8-4 win over Ethan Rowton and Alex Rowton in the top doubles match. The team match ended at No. 2 doubles with Fabrico Morales and Marlon Dal Pont's 8-3 win over Felipe Barrientos and Andre Jacomini.

The win gave Lindsey Wilson the necessary five points for the team win.

Bogajo, Morales, Pablo Vilches and Sam Rogersen all won their singles matches in straight sets to earn the 9-0 win.

The regular season title is 10th straight for the Blue Raiders and their ninth outright title in the last 10 seasons.

Lindsey Wilson returns to action at 2 p.m. CT on Monday, April 8, as the Blue Raiders host Asbury (Ky.) at Henry Baughman Tennis Complex.
