With the fall season coming to a close and the spring season rapidly approaching, the Michigan men’s tennis team sent three players to California to compete in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Fall Nationals on Nov. 6. The Wolverines were on a mission to earn respect on a national level and gain momentum before their spring season. 

They accomplished just that.

First, senior setter MacKenzi Welsh was blocked by the front line of the Golden Gophers, a unit that Michigan had no answer for. Then, freshman outside hitter May Pertofsky missed a spike on the next play to give Minnesota a lead it would not surrender for the rest of the set. Those two plays typified a Wolverines offense that was lackluster at best, as Michigan (18-8 overall, 11-5 Big Ten) fell to the Golden Gophers (20-4, 14-2), 25-21, 25-23, 25-20. As a team, the Wolverines hit a measly .080 percent, their second lowest percentage of the season. They also committed 30 errors while Minnesota had just 10.
