The HCHS Cyclones boy's tennis team fell to 7-2 after a 4-5 loss to Clarinda on Thursday, April 30.
The meet was tied after singles(3-3), in which Ryan Andersen, Willy Henrich and Jacob Harmon all won. "Ryan, Willy and Jacob played extremely well in their singles action tonight," Coach Chad Bruns said. "They served and hit the ball really well tonight, which is what we needed everyone to do to win the meet", Bruns added.
The Cyclones lost two out of three doubles matches giving Clarinda the victory. "I was really proud of Jacob and Willy in the doubles today. It was a close match all the way and it was great to see them fight off two match points to win the tie-break," Bruns added.
"Clarinda is one of the top two teams in the Conference and it was great to see our guys compete so well. Jeff Williams is one of the better players in the state so we knew we needed everyone to step up and get wins anywhere we could today. Unfortunately, we were one win short," Bruns said.
