During his sophomore year of tennis at Seymour High School, Alex Craig played the No. 2 singles position.
Then for his junior and senior seasons, he took over the No. 1 spot, and he said he could definitely tell a difference in opponents.
“I was thinking since it was only one position that it wouldn’t be that big of a jump, but for most teams, there is a really big gap between their 1 and their 2,” Craig said. “The No. 1 has usually been playing a lot longer, and they’re a lot more consistent, so there is a pretty big jump.”
