Facing a tough opponent match after match this season, it has been a struggle for the Seymour boys tennis team.
Coach Brad Emerson said the Owls have been in the thick of things in several matches, but they haven’t been able to pull out a win.
Monday’s home match against Edinburgh, however, was the Owls’ chance to pick up their first victory, and they did just that, finishing off the Lancers 5-0.
“It’s been a tough season so far, needless to say, so I’m really happy for the kids to get the first win of the year. They played well,” Emerson said. “We’ve been in a lot of matches this year. We just haven’t found ways to win, so tonight, we did that.”
Alex Craig didn’t give up any games at No. 1 singles, putting the Owls on top 1-0. Soon after, Seth Stuckwisch and Andrew Rudge wrapped up a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 1 doubles to make it 2-0.
