In a Big 16 Conference crossover match, visiting Kalamazoo Central swept the singles flights to edge Niles 5-3 on Wednesday afternoon.
The Vikings won three out of four doubles flights and went three sets at No. 4 doubles, but could not come up with the victory.
Winning for Niles were Chris and Alex Lewellen, who defeated Joe Zywicki and Zech Dueweke 6-2 and 6-2 at No. 1 doubles.
The Lewellen brothers played on the Vikings’ new courts for the first time this season.
