The Chieftains won three out of four doubles flights and split the singles flights to pick up the win.

“I was actually a little disappointed we didn’t win at third and fourth singles,” Dowagiac coach Sonny Swartz said. “Overall, our doubles brought it today and played a good match. They carried us to the victory.”

Marc Tyrakowski was a straight sets winner at No. 1 singles, while Jon Robinson picked up a default victory.

Winning in doubles play were Mitch Warsko and Zach Davis (No. 2); Vaughn Herter and Tony Kidman (No. 3) and Jennings Brosnan and Ethan Wagner (No. 4).
