The Seward County Community College menís tennis team represented junior college tennis well last weekend at the Wichita Collegiate Tennis Tournament. Sophomore Luis Cabizuca and freshmen Ivan Michelli and Mauricio Ouriques all won their respective brackets, competing against both junior college and four-year players. The Saints tallied a 23-13 overall record with three players recording a perfect 4-0 record, and two other players winning three matches each. Seward County welcomes back six players from last seasonís team that finished in 9th place at the NJCAA National Tournament.

In the championship match, Cabizuca defeated another Nebraska Kearney University player 7-5, 4-6 and 10-7.

During his freshman season, Cabizuca claimed the consolation bracket championship in No. 4 singles at the NJCAA National Tournament.
