The HCHS boy's tennis team won their third 5-4 dual meet of the season, defeating Carroll Kuemper on Monday, April 16.
"Another close meet and another close win," Coach Chad Bruns said. "It's great that we are winning all these close meets but it would be nice to play better in doubles. We have been ahead 4-2 after singles in two meets(LC and Kuemper) and ended up winning only one doubles match in both of them. We need to work harder and ultimately play better in doubles."
The matches of the day were at #3 and #6 singles where both Riley and Keenan Finn were down 5-6 and ended up winning the last three games to finish at 8-6. "I'm very happy with Riley and Keenan pulling out those close matches for us today," Coach Chad Bruns said. "It really builds up confidence for them for the rest of the season."
Nate Ohms and Nick Petsche continued their winning ways at #1 and #2 singles, winning 8-0 and 8-1, respectively. Nate Ohms and Trey Lansman got the last victory of the day, clinching the meet, winning 8-0 at #2 doubles.
