OREGON — Findlay rolled in four of the five matches and rallied in the other in posting a 5-0 sweep of Oregon Clay on Tuesday in a Three Rivers Athletic Conference tennis match.
In a marathon 3 hour, 15-minute match at No. 1 singles, Findlay freshman Drew Swisher rallied to beat Oregon Clay’s Dempsey Coughlin 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (9-7). After dropping the first set, Swisher trailed 2-0 in the second before rallying. He also trailed 6-2 in the third-set tiebreaker, but fought off five match points before earning the win.
Findlay, 8-2 overall and 4-0 in the TRAC, made quick work of the other matches.
In singles, Matt Munoz (No. 2) blanked Todd Gyurke and Sam Giedeman (No. 3) shut out Jacob Lammers by identical 6-0, 6-0 scores.
Findlay’s doubles teams also won by matching totals. Alec Kagy and Kyle Hennessy (No. 1) beat Brody Leichty and Jacob VonHersett 6-1, 6-0, while Andre Hoffman and Logan Tichnor (No. 2) flipped that score in a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Blake Hornyak and Justin Lutz.
Findlay is back in action today with a nonleague match at Springfield.
