Grandville, Mich. - The Ferris State University men's tennis team fell 4-3 in a hotly contested Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) match at Grand Valley State at the Premier Athletic & Tennis Club on Sunday (March 31).

Iswan again won in singles, 6-2, 6-2 over GVSU's Geissler at no. 2 singles, while Baroja dispatched Grand Valley's Jack Dausman 7-5, 6-4 in the no. 3 singles, but the Bulldogs succumbed at the no. 1, 4, 5, 6 singles and no. 3 doubles to fall to 5-9 on the season and 3-1 in GLIAC play.
