A day after having to sweat out a 5-4 victory over Clinton, the Muscatine boys tennis team eased past Burlington on Friday. 

Trayton Fuegen, Sam Wieskamp, Luke Zobel and Ethan Heth all won their singles matches, and the Muskies won both doubles matches while cruising to an 8-1 victory. 

The No. 1 doubles team of Fuegen and Wieskamp and No. 2 team of Zobel and Wester closed the day with victories for Muscatine. 

Burlington had to forfeit the No. 6 singles match and No. 3 doubles match and picked up its lone win in the No. 2 singles match. 

Muscatine is now 3-2 and will get the day off Saturday after its home invitational at Weed Park Tennis Courts was postponed.
