Northwest Missouri State (2-0) carried the momentum early in the match, sweeping doubles play to take an early 3-0 advantage on the 15th-ranked Mustangs.

The Bearcats added wins at the bottom of the lineup with Aymeric Autones defeating Dylan Hall, 6-1, 6-2, at No. 5 singles and Fin Glowick posting a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Joshua Sundaram on court six.

NWMSU also added a win at No. 2 with 42nd-ranked Sergi Fontcuberta tallying a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Vasudev Vijayaraman.

In addition to Toyos' victory at the top position, Midwestern State (2-2) earned wins in the middle of the lineup with Angel Palacios taking down the Central Region's 11th-ranked player in Mauro Tete, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, on court three and Chris Norrie collecting a 6-4, 7-5 decision over Josef Altmann at No. 4 singles.

The Mustangs continue play tomorrow at noon with a match against No. 19 Southwest Baptist (Mo.) at the John A. Bryant Tennis Center.
