Well, the Kats are still waiting for the night when we fire on all five cylinders, but despite this we are sneaking out some 3-2’s and picking each other up when we need to. Last week it was our singles coming through, and last night it was the doubles.
Winning quickly and only dropping one game in the process was Jon Callane at #1 singles. Jon continues to be the solid and reliable anchor that this team needs. Excellent job, Jon!
Stepping up with a convincing win at #2 doubles was the tandem of Jacob Walker and Brandon Hansen. These guys get better and better every time they step on the court! Way to go guys!
Next to strike to seal the deal in straights was the #1 doubles team of Miki Sanchez and Drew Swain. These guys played a great first set winning by the score of 6-3 and withstood a nice push from their Mac opponents to take the second set by the score of 6-4. Great job guys!
Though the match would be determined, #2 and #3 singles would still find themselves in dog fights.
Taylor Duncan had a huge week last week going 3-0 against tough competition, but could not muster the same magic, losing in a long and tough two-set match with the second featuring a tiebreak.
Ty Lauderbaugh started sluggish coming off of the long weekend, but got his game going in the second set. Despite his raise in play, he couldn’t quite force a third set. I was proud of how both of our singles guys lifted their play level in their second sets and kept trying!
The JV made quick work of their opponents, only dropping a couple of total games in the entire team match. Winning in singles was Jayleb Walsh and Andrew Guerre. Winning in doubles action was the team of Caleb Wallace and Isaac Elkin.
The Varsity moves to 7-3 on the season and the JV 8-2.
Both teams will be in action on Thursday with an important road match at Logansport.
