Boardman - The Youngstown State men's tennis team used a solid performance from start to finish to claim a 6-1 win over Cleveland State on Saturday afternoon. The Penguins set a school record with their 16th dual win this spring.

In singles play, Maroscher won 6-4, 6-3 over Nico Mosturdi at No. 1. It was the final home contest for Maroscher, who transferred to YSU this year from Grand Canyon. Marsocher improved to 19-10 on the season and 15-5 in dual play.

Veremeichuk earned a 6-2, 7-6 win over Colton Buffington at No. 2. At No. 3, Rodrigues beat Ben Slade 6-4, 6-1. In action at No. 4, Garretto cruised to an impressive 6-3, 6-0 victory.
