The Manchester tennis team won its fifth consecutive match by defeating visiting Triton on Tuesday. Due to Trojan injuries, Manchester picked up a win by forfeit win at 3 singles and the typical senior sweep at both 1 singles and 1 doubles. Max Karg gave up just one game in elevating his top singles record to 13-1 this season. “Max took control of the net and relied on skill and athleticism to win on his 17th birthday.” Cain and Pegg upped their doubles record to 14-1 with a shutout victory. “Our guys were just too solid in all parts of the game to give their opponents a chance.” Also winning for the Squires was the doubles duo of Heath Dierks and Luke Donathan, dropping just 1 game each set. “I’m starting to see these two play off each other’s strengths. They compliment each other well style wise.” Playing at 2 singles was Spence Trick. “Spence forced many deuce games and keeps improving right before our eyes. He plays with confidence and thoughtfulness.” Coach Screeton and Coach Eichenauer see the team peaking at the right time of the year. “And the guys are having a lot of fun together. The seniors are really helping the younger guys improve and raise their level of play.” Thursday home vs. Tipp Valley and Monday Senior Night vs. Rochester at 5:00pm.
