    • Is 9-2 on the dual season after picking up two victories the past weekend, also improving his career record to 22-6 in his first season in the Maroon and White. 
    • His two wins the past weekend came in straight sets, making seven of his nine dual match victories coming in such fashion. 
    • His 7-5, 6-1 victory Sunday against No. 98 Ben Davis clinched a thrilling 4-3 victory against the 47th-ranked Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders to close out nonconference play. 
    • The win against Davis also improved his record against ranked opponents to 5-3 for his young career and 3-1 in the dual match season. 
    • Seven of the freshman’s nine victories have come at the No. 1 spot for the Bulldogs. 
    • In doubles play, Bogaerts has paired with freshman teammate Pedro Dumont for one of the best starts for an MSU doubles squad.
