The Harlan Community boy's tennis team lost a heartbreaker on Tuesday, April 18 to the Glenwood Rams 4 matches to 5. Seven of the nine matches were within three games and really could have gone either way.
"After a disappointing meet at Kuemper, we really played great tennis today against one of the best teams in the conference," Coach Chad Bruns said. "Even though we lost, we were really close to winning this meet and everyone played well and gave their best which is all you can ask for."
The three singles matches that got away from the Cyclones were Alec Plagman, Josh Cheek and Jonny Cheek. Alec had match point in the tiebreaker while both Josh and Jonny were up 7-4 and just couldn't out their opponents away at the end. "This meet was a lot of fun to watch as both sides played great tennis and the tightness of the matches made it very intense at the end," Bruns added.
The Cyclones are now 4-4 on the season . The Cyclones host Shenandoah on Thursday, April 19th.
