MAC Indoor Tournament.
Kalamazoo, Mich. - The Rockets finished the fall portion of their season at the MAC Indoor Invitational, where junior/sophomore duo Thawin Suksathaporn/Tyler Gargas took home the flight three doubles crown.

Friday's portion of the tournament focused solely on doubles play, where Suksathaporn/Gargas snagged wins over Binghamton's Alejandro Pena/Inigo Saez (8-2) and Buffalo's Nickolas Frisk/Jonah Murphy (8-3) before defeating Ball State's Tom Carney/Bryce Bonin (8-5) in the championship. Also within flight three, senior/freshman duo Serjen Olmedo/Cole Shoults took third-place, claiming victories over Binghamton's Valentin Bouchet/Josh Druger (8-4) and Buffalo's Frisk/Murphy (8-1).

Shoults not only landed in third on the doubles court, but battled his way to third-place in flight six singles, defeating Binghamton's Alejandro Pena (6-3, 7-5) and Inigo Saez (6-4, 6-3). Senior Luka Vitosevic also took third, bagging victories over Binghamton's Dylan Friedman (6-2, 6-2) and Buffalo's Valdemar Holm (2-6, 3-2, 10-8) in flight three.

"I think our doubles is showing some real improvement," said head coach Al Wermer. "In singles, frankly Saturday we were a little disappointed, but bounced back pretty well today. We are pumped up about a strong off-season segment."

The Rockets return in the spring with a road matchup at Purdue Jan. 12.
