Grand Rapids Christian High School
South Christian High School
In continuing their OK Gold Conference schedule, the boys tennis team faced Grand Rapids Christian this afternoon. Despite many competitive matches, GR Christian was able to take the Sailors by a score of 7-1.
Highlights for the Sailors included Avery Brinkert taking Ryan Jacobsen to 3 sets, only to end up losing by a score of 62, 46, 60. The biggest highlight of the day was when Josh DeHaan defeated Caleb Betten, 63, 61. In playing superb defensive tennis, Josh was able to outlast and eventually wear down his opponent.
Overall, Coach Pothoven was pleased again with how everyone competed to the finish, never waving any white flags or giving up. The players continue to improve as they hopefully begin to gear up for post-season play at conference and regionals, which is only 3 weeks away.
