The Boys Tennis Team found itself in an 0-5 situation after loses to Mountain League Rival Huntingdon on Wednesday, April 6 and the highly skilled Bishop Guilfoyle Marauders on Tuesday, April 12.

Last week in a match against Huntingdon, the boys went in with high hopes and chance to earn points to get closer to a Mountain League title. After very close singles matches from Michael Lewis, A.J. Grassi, and Trevor Fink, the boys went into the doubles sets without a win on the day. However, victory came near the end of their meeting when the doubles team of Connor Wertz and A.J. Grassi defeated Huntingdon 8-4.

“It was a tight game at first, but I’m glad Connor and I were able to come away with the first doubles win this season,” said a winded Grassi.

The boys lost to Huntingdon 1-6 but spirits were still high after the match.

The following week started off with a difficult opponent as the team traveled to Mansion Park to face the undefeated tennis powerhouse. BG. With a smaller roster due to duel-sports conflicts, the boys planed to work with what they had to upset the Marauders on their senior night. The Marauders quickly jumped up in match wins on the Eagles that would decide the outcome.

The Boys from home are looking to rebound today as they welcome Clearfield into their house.
