The Varsity tennis team won their 32nd regular season match in a row tonight with a road win against Union City. This team has brought energy and desire every night, and has consistently found ways to win even when playing from behind. Their last regular season loss was August 15th, 2017. We celebrated the milestone with a stop for pizza in Richmond on the way home.
Tonight the Panthers played very well, sweeping TEC Conference foe Union City 5-0. Garrett Dalton came out of the gate flat out ready to play. He won #2 Singles 6-0, 6-0 in 24 minutes -that has to be some kind of record. AJ Dalton wasn’t far behind, winning #1 Singles 6-0, 6-1. Cooper Davis played a good match as well, winning 6-3, 6-2.
Both Doubles courts dominated tonight, consolidating some gains in both strategy and court positioning. Kyle Johnson and Ethan Yoder won #1 Singles 6-1, 6-0 while Dylan Chandler and Alex Cook did equally as well but with reverse scores, winning #2 Doubles 6-0, 6-1.
The JV squad was also impressive tonight. Brady Howell won the #1 JV Singles court 8-3. Connor Pyle and Connor Keith completed the Panther sweep over Union City, winning #2 Doubles 8-0.
Knightstown Tennis will be back in action on Saturday morning at the Henry County tourney, looking to defend their title from last year.
