Squires Tennis Edges Columbia City

The Manchester tennis team traveled to Columbia City on a beautiful Monday night and came away with a 3­2 victory. Manchester quickly jumped on the Eagles 2­0 with victories from #1 Singles senior Max Karg and # 1 Doubles seniors Noah Cain and Matthew Pegg. The seniors would not even allow their opponents a game this evening. “The seniors led by example tonight, and played high level tennis,” said assistant coach Eric Screeton. The next match off the courts secured the win for the Squires as the #2 Doubles team of Heath Dierks and Luke Donathan won 6­3, 6­0. “It is great to see the growth and development of this two doubles team, the communication and the consistency is improving weekly,” added Screeton. Finally, the final two matches extended the evening, but saw experienced upperclassmen just have enough tennis skill to defeat the young Squires. At #3 Singles, Parker Wagoner lost 2­6, 3­6, and at #2 Singles Spence Trick was outlasted 0­6, 7­5, (4­10) in a super tiebreaker. “It was a great night for the Squire tennis team, we always want to win every match, but it is clearly evident that the young guns are learning the game, constantly getting better, and competing every point of every game. Parker and Spence played great tonight.” concluded Screeton. The Squire tennis team has now won 4 straight matches as Sectional week quickly approaches.
