Saints report: CSS men’s tennis looks to go out in style on Saturday against Northwestern – Reuters Sports News

When St. Scholastica hosts Northwestern in UMAC men’s tennis at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Duluth Indoor Sports Center, it will be more than just a UMAC game on the line, but a chance for the Saints to exit the conference in grand style.

The CSS men’s tennis team hasn’t lost a conference regular season game this century, a 171-game winning streak since 1998. Saturday is the Saints’ final regular season game and it’s a good game, with the CSS with a 7-3 overall record and 5-0 mark in conference play while the Eagles are 16-2 and 3-0.

With St. Scholastica entering the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this fall, the streak will end in a win or loss Saturday.

CSS ends the regular season with a non-conference game at 2 p.m. Wednesday in Duluth against future MIAC foe St. John’s. The UMAC Men’s Tennis Tournament runs from April 29 to May 7. Aside from the streak, the only doubleheader CSS lost to a UMAC opponent during this time was against Northwestern in the UMAC Tournament Championship in 2018.

St. Scholastica men’s basketball player Nick Carlson has become the first CSS men’s basketball player to be named to D3hoops.com’s All-West Region Team.

Carlson, a Canyon junior who played for South Ridge High School, led the Saints at 14.8 points per game but averaged 24.3 points per game against the league’s next three best opponents during the regular season. .

Carlson was also efficient, making 52% of his field goal attempts and 44% from 3 points. Carlson became the first CSS player since Will Maupins in 2007 to win UMAC Player of the Year accolades.
