HCHS Boy's Tennis Defeat Shenandoah to Improve to 7-1
The HCHS boy's tennis team defeated Shenandoah 8-1 Thursday to improve their record to 7-1 on the season. "I am very proud of how we have played so far this season," Coach Chad Bruns said. "However, we have some very good teams left on our schedule(Atlantic, Clarinda and Red Oak) that will really show us where we stand in the conference," Bruns added.
The only loss of the meet for HCHS came at #1 singles. "Ryan ran into another great player today in Justin Buzzard and just could not get any momentum going," Bruns said. "Everyone else played very strongly in convincing wins."
HCHS continued to play well in doubles, sweeping the Mustangs in all three matches. "I am very pleased with the improvement of all our doubles team," Bruns added. "Mitch and Nate Ohms had to come back from 1-5 to win in another exciting match for them."
The Mustangs were hampered by having their previous #2 and #3 varsity players drop off the team yesterday. "It was a tough match for them after losing two of their top three players. I have to give Coach French and his players credit for giving there best effort in a tough situation today," Bruns added.
