The Valparaiso men's tennis team kicked off action at the ITA Midwest Regionals in East Lansing, Mich. on Thursday with singles play.

Junior Eric Honert (Arvada, Colo./Ralston Valley) split a pair of matches on Thursday. Honert fell in his first match of the day to Northern Illinois' Simon Formont by a score of 6-3, 6-4, but rebounded for a 6-3, 6-2 victory in the back draw over Youngstown State's Dawoud Kabli. Freshman Lucas Waak (Manitowoc, Wis./Roncalli) also competed in the qualifying bracket on Thursday, but dropped a pair of matches, falling by identical 6-2, 6-1 scores to Cleveland State's Niklas Jonsson and Wisconsin's Jalavov Jakhongir.
