The Squire tennis stretched its win streak to 6 matches with a 4-1 win over visiting Tippecanoe Valley Thursday.
Top singles player, Max Karg, dominated against his Viking opponent dropping just one game. “Max was all business out there today, and he continues to encourage and mentor his younger teammates. Also winning at singles was freshman Spence Trick. Trick started strong getting up 4-1. After fighting off a Tipp Valley rally, Spence was only ahead 4-3. He would win to go 5-3 and trade games to close out set one. “Spence took control of this match during the crucial moments. He also controlled much of set two with mental toughness.” Also victorious for Manchester were both doubles teams. Cain and Pegg would win for the third time this week without giving up a single game at one doubles. “These guys are really hot right now going into sectional week.” The fourth team victory came when the two doubles duo of Dierks and Donathan continued their winning ways. “This is their sixth straight win, and they are getting more confident each match.” The Squires celebrate senior night next Monday as they host Rochester at 4:30. Then sectional matches begin Wednesday at Peru.
