Boys Junior Varsity Tennis vs. Multiple Opponents

Game Date
Sep 11, 2021

The Eagles had a great weekend of tennis at the Mona Shores Tri.  The team won against Mona Shores 4-2 and fell to a strong FHN team 0-6.  We played third set tiebreakers against FHN at four different flights and are looking forward to our rematch against them in two weeks!  The tournament director from Mona Shores wanted to play an abbreviated format - best two out of three sets, sets to 4 games.  We pushed for normal sets to 6 games because Whitehall had already dropped out of the tournament and we always want to maximize play time for our players, but to no avail.  Some highlights from the Tri are Joel VanHekken and Eli Compagner winning at 1 doubles against Mona Shores 4-4 (7-0), 3-5, (13-11), Alex Amash and Bradley Buter fighting to take FHN to a third set tiebreak at 2nd doubles 3-5, 4-1, (5-10) Caleb Nykamp and Nate Scheffler winning against Mona Shores at 3 doubles 4-1, 4-1, Connor Ryan, and Caleb Westhouse beating Mona Shores 4-0, 4-2 at 4 doubles, BJ Apol and Josh Vanshepen mounting an awesome comeback taking FHN to a third set tiebreak at 5 doubles 1-4, 5-3, (6-10), Henry Snow and Jake Mersman beating Mona Shores, 4-0, 4-2, at 6 doubles, Jerry Zhang and Simon Speulstra winning against Mona Shores 4-2, 4-3, at 7 doubles.   The team is looking forward to playing FHC away this afternoon, and Byron Center at home on Wednesday.  Go Eagles!
