Pendleton Heights High School
New Castle High School
The boys varsity tennis team was defeated by Pendleton Heights 3-2. Will Thurlow won at #1 singles 6-1, 6-2 and Rylan Huntley won at #2 singles 6-3, 6-4. Varsity record is 7-7 and 2-2 in the Hoosier Heritage Conference. The Junior Varsity won 3-0. Josh Martin won at #1 singles 8-3, Blake McKown and Brandon Cook won at #1 doubles 8-0 and Jacob Lucas and Jackson Clapp won at #2 doubles 8-3. JV record is 4-3-2 and 1-1 in the HHC.
Will and Rylan really played well against a couple of good players for Pendleton. These two really seem to have it going and were volleying the ball very well. They continue to play good tennis for us. We did not win a doubles match again and when we do not win every singles match we lose the tennis match. So we are continuing to work on our doubles combinations and hopefully someone will step up for us in that area of weakness for our team.
