HCHS Boy's Tennis Finish Second at Hawkeye 10 Tournamnet

Coach Chad Bruns' Comments:

I have to say that I am extremely proud of how much our team has improved from last year when we were at the bottom of this tournament. Everyone helped out in achieving this second place finish so it was a total team effort. We just played hard and good tennis overall today and really have been the last month or so. These guys have really stepped up and improved their game not just from last year but throughout this season as well. I am also very happy that everyone got a medal today as it will continue building our confidence going into Districts on Thursday(May 12) in Carroll.

Of course, major congratulations goes out to Josh Cheek and Kaleb Kaster for their Conference Championship in the #2 Doubles Tournament. They played outstanding tennis today, especially in the final, defeating Kuemper 6-4, 6-1.
