“We got to mix around our bottom of the lineup yesterday and today,” Gulf Coast coach Sam Blackburn said. “Being able to do that is a great thing to be able to do. Nos. 1-6 all performed really well. I’m proud of them.”


Gulf Coast (2-2, 2-2 MACCC) got back to .500 with the victory. Northeast (0-4, 0-4) is fielding its first tennis team since 2017.


The Bulldogs are back in action Friday when East Central visits. First serves will be at 2 p.m.
