2. Red Oak-22
3. Harlan/Lewis Central-16
I was very pleased with our third place finish. Everybody on the team contributed points which is what one of our goals was as a team going into the tournament. Everybody played hard and played well throughout the day. I am very proud of the team's performance and it will no doubt give us confidence going into Distrcits.
#1 Singles-Nate Ohms-#2 seed-Got 2nd place(7 points)
1st Round-defeated Ryan Hansen(Creston) 10-1
2nd Round-defeated Mitch Lieferman(Atlantic) 4-6, 6-1, 6-2
Final-lost to Pete Walker(Red Oak) 1-6, 1-6
I thought Nate played very well today. He played excellent in the final two sets against Mitch and then, once again, ran into Pete. Nate continues to struggle against Pete, who is an outstanding player. If we face Pete again, Nate needs to go in thinking he can win, which I believe Nate can do.
#2 Singles-Nick Petsche-#1 Seed-Got 3rd place(6 points)
1st Round-defeated Mitchell Behrens(Kuemper) 10-5
2nd Round-lost to Ryan Hansen(Glenwood-#4 seed) 6-7(5-7), 4-6
3rd/4th Place-defeated Mitch Kinsey(Denison) 8-1
I was very pleased with Nick's play today. He played very well even in the loss to Ryan, who is a very good player. It was nice to see Nick bounce back after the semifinal loss, which was a tough loss for him, to get third place.
