The Titans cruised to another conference title by winning all four positions.
Keegan McLaughlin and Tyler Shaw claimed the singles titles. Luke Fouquette and Carter Reese took the No. 1 doubles championship and Jake Farley, and T.J. Niles were winners at No. 2 doubles.

Fouquette and Reese beat Del City (6-1, 6-0), Shawnee (6-1, 6-1) and Piedmont (6-2, 6-1). Elgin also went 3-0 on the day, but the Titans won the tiebreaker. Farley and Niles beat Piedmont in the finals, 6-3, 6-0.
Carl Albert traveled to Heritage Hall on Thursday for a dual. The Titans battled the Chargers but came up empty in a 4-0 loss.
McLaughlin beat Owen Fellrath in the first set but lost in a tiebreaker (3-6, 6-3, 10-6). Shaw lost to Larsen Van Horn (6-2, 6-1) in 2 singles. Fouquette and Reese lost at No. 1 doubles (6-2, 6-3). Farley and Ben Sutterfield fell at No. 2 doubles by the same score.
