Senior Carl Lindqvist of the Westmont Men’s Tennis team (10-9, 7-2) was named as an All-American (first team) at the conclusion of the 2016 season.

Overall, Lindqvist went 11-4 playing at number one singles and went 8-8 playing at number one doubles with partner Travis Kimsey.

Lindqvist has already received two awards this season – he was named to the All-GSAC first team and chosen by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as an NAIA Regional Award winner for Senior Player to Watch.

Fourteenth ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis (10-9) clinched a 5-4 victory over #19 Bethany (13-4) in the Opening Round of the Men’s Tennis NAIA National Tournament. Later that night, the Warriors were knocked out of the tournament when they were defeated in the second round by third ranked Xavier (15-7) by a score of 1-5.

The first and second round matches were played on the same day because the first rounds had to be rescheduled to day two of the tournament due to rain.

“It has been a long and crazy day,” noted head coach Mark Basham. “I was very happy to come all this way and get that win against Bethany – a team that we were ranked higher than, but a team that I was concerned about. We are a solid team but we can’t take anything for granted and I knew that they could beat us. So being down 2-1 after the doubles was a little worrisome.”

In a semifinal match-up of the Men’s Tennis Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament, between sixteenth ranked and number two seeded Westmont Men’s Tennis (9-7) and number three seeded Biola (11-12), the Warriors secured an early victory over the Eagles defeating them 5-1, just three singles matches in. With this win, the Warriors will advance to the championship game.

The first team to reach five points would win the game. The doubles matches were played first and the Warriors won two out of the three.

“I thought our guys started out really well in the doubles, winning at numbers two and three,” reflected head coach Mark Basham. “It was lights out at three and really solid at two once we got it going. At number one I thought we were right there to win it, but Biola stepped up and earned the win. Both teams are good and played well so it was a pretty even matchup. I was happy being up two to one but certainly would have loved to have the cushion of going into singles three to 0.”
