WINFIELD, Kan. (Results – PDF) – The Southwestern College men's tennis team won two flight championships on the final day of the 2017 Tiger Jinx Invitational. The two-day event concluded Saturday at the Louderback Family Tennis Courts in Arkansas City, Kan.

Both of Southwestern's flight championships came in doubles play. The Moundbuilder duo of Ellis/Hartley opened Saturday's final day of competition with a default win over Newman, then held off Cowley's Walitzky/Jimenez in a three-set thriller, 6-3, 3-6, 10-7, to win the Flight B championship.

The Flight C draw featured an all-Southwestern final. Le/Denike defeated Cowley's Nix/Martinez in a 6-1, 5-7, 17-15 semifinal marathon, and Ramirez/Nichols cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 win over Oklahoma Wesleyan to set up a championship match between the two Moundbuilder teams. Ramirez/Nichols prevailed in a 6-4, 7-6 (7) decision.

Freshman Aaron Hartley finished second in the Flight D Singles competition. Hartley defeated John Brown's Sam Spencer in three sets (7-5, 2-6, 10-7) in the semifinal round, but fell to Newman's Ajani King in the championship match, 6-2, 6-2.

Southwestern will host its second tournament in as many weekends next weekend. The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Fall Championship is slated to begin Friday at the T.H. Vaughan Tennis Center in Winfield.
