Boilers Edged Out by Cleveland State

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.- Purdue was defeated by the Cleveland State Vikings after a fiercely competitive match. The 2-5 result gives the Boilermakers their second loss of the spring. 

The Boilers took the doubles point for an early 1-0 lead. Michal Wozniak/Julen Morgan set the tone by bulldozing their opponents 6-0, followed by a strong 6-4 finish from Mujtaba Ali-Khan/Milledge Cossu

In singles, Cossu kept his winning streak rolling with a victory in straight sets, giving him his first career win at No. 3. The Vikings stayed close behind and gained the lead after wins at No. 1, 2, and 5. 

Purdue’s two freshmen showed their drive by taking their matches the distance. In his first match as a Boilermaker, Hassan Baroudi was bested in three by Cole Chappell 6(4)-7, 6-3, 6-3. Ali-Khan took his first set 6-3, and was able to rally an tie the third 5-5 but ran out of steam against Raul Teichmann falling 7-5 in the final effort.
