Over the past two weeks the boys tennis team has had five matches and is still waiting to finish several games that were postponed at the beginning of their season. The team suffered hard losses to opponents like Altoona, Punxsutawney and Juniata. However, they also pulled off a hard fought victory against Mountain League rival Clearfield.

“We have a tough schedule so to get the win against a pretty good Clearfield team is defiantly a confidence booster for our team,” said Head Coach Randy Irvin, “This should help us later in the year to pick up some more wins.”

Each match has a different set of players due to the duel athletes and activity conflicts team members face, but each match provides experience to the younger athletes starting out on the team. With a young team headed by veteran players, each game of their busy schedule helps the team make progress and build off of each other to grow their skills.

As the team finishes out their schedule, they’ll try to beat rival Huntington on the second go around for a chance to tie for the mountain League title, and improve their record (1-5).
