COSTA MESA, Calif. — The Middlebury College men’s tennis team breezed to wins in its first four matches of its trip to California this week, improving to 7-0. The Panthers, finalists in NCAA Division III a year ago, are ranked No. 3 this season.
At least one tough test awaits in their final two games out West: After visiting D-II Riverside on Thursday, the Panthers will travel to No. 2 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Saturday, the defending NCAA champion.
