Roundup: Edwardsburg blanks Niles netters

Host Niles was no match for the Edwardsburg tennis team in a non-conference match Tuesday.

The Eddies dropped just two games in sweeping the singles flights.

Edwardsburg was so dominant that it blanked the Vikings at No. 2, 3 and 4 singles.

In doubles matches, Niles was able to win a few more games, but the Vikings were still swept in straight sets.

Niles is back on the court today as the Vikings host a SMAC doubleheader.

Niles will face Kalamazoo Central in the first match at 1 p.m. before entertaining Kalamazoo Loy Norrix at 4 p.m.
