Midwestern State battered 34th-ranked St. Edward's (Texas) 8-1 in a rematch of the 2014 South Central Region finals Friday afternoon at the MSU Tennis Center.

Toyos put the Mustangs on the brink of clinching the win by improving to 15-4 in singles play with a 6-1, 7-5 win over Pineda at the No. 3 spot.

Norrie would score the clincher with a straight-set 6-3, 6-4 win over Agoglia at No. 4 to improve to an impressive 14-5 overall in singles play this season.

Davidson came back to defeat Bake 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 at the No. 2 position, while St. Edward's claimed its lone win at No. 1 as Clynes defeated Boborykin 3-6, 6-4, 10-8.

Freshman Matt Tyer and Grejtak finished off wins at the Nos. 5 and 6 spots for the Mustangs.
