KNOD Radio Report:
The HCHS boy's tennis team improved to 3-1 on the season by defeating the Denison Monarchs 6-3 on Monday, April 13. The Cyclones had the meet won after the singles competition by winning five out of six singles matches. Highlights of the meet saw #4 singles player Nate Ohms remain undefeated in singles play and #3 singles player Nate Pattee come back to win after being down 2-7.
"It is always a nice feeling to have won the meet after singles", Coach Chad Bruns said. "However, sometimes that allows the team to let down a little bit and that might be what happened in doubles. We lost two out of three doubles which is is frustrating as our doubles had played very well all year."
"This was a great win for us against a team we have not beaten for quite a few years. We won 6-3 but the meet had a lot of close matches that could have gone either way", Bruns added. "Winning close matches builds confidence and I hope to have everyone continue to improve their game each match they play".
"I am also really proud of our JV guys. They continue to play very well and improve their games as well. Overall, I am very pleased with how our entire team is improving, " Bruns said.
