The boys tennis team traveled to Northridge on Saturday for the Northridge Invitational. Some great tennis was played all day as the Dogs faced off against Park Heritage, Southmont, Tecumseh, Fountain Central, and Northridge.
Eli Grasham, Carter Byrd, and Jack Michael played #1, #2, and #3 singles respectively. Jake Swinford and Jackson Ray played #1 doubles while Francisco Lopez and Gabriel Aquino played #2 doubles.
All of the boys played extremely well and their improvement over the season and the course of the day was very evident. Francisco and Gabriel won two of their five matches at #2 doubles. Eli Grasham won games off of all the opposing #1 singles players. Coach Smith said, “Carter Byrd continues to improve every match in singles play while Jake Swinford and Jackson Ray are beginning to get in the groove of playing doubles together.
The boys travel to Western and Western Boone this week in hopes of coming home with their first team win of the season.
