FULTON -- Having surrendered a consolation match at the three doubles against Ottawa on Thursday, Andres De Los Rios Kolejewska and Felix Diedrichs roared to a quick win for William Woods (13-4) on Friday, powering the Owls to a 7-0 victory over former AMC foe Freed-Hardeman (3-12).

The pair needed only 17 minutes to polish off Braden Young and Brayden Martin 6-1.

"These guys just keep growing, and the trajectory of this team is one that breaks records at the moment," William Woods tennis coach Chance Joost said in a release. "We have to keep this momentum going, and I believe we will ride it into the conference tournament."

Ben Grumley continued his solid run at the two singles line, downing Pablo Poleo Gonzalez 6-0, 6-1, with Vaclav Schneider following suit over Merlin Bolema 6-1, 6-4. Stepan Mach needed just an hour to clinch the match win for Woods, picking up a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Theo Devals at the four line.

The Owls' next game is an AMC rematch against Missouri Baptist. Woods will celebrate Senior Day before next Wednesday's AMC contest.
