South Christian High School
Caledonia High School
Stage 2 of the neighborhood rivals put South Christian on the road to take on Caledonia. With a team loaded with seniors (NINE seniors!), Caledonia was able to hold serve, winning the dual match by a score of 7-0. The only chance for a South Christian victory was shortened when the rains came. Josh DeHaan, at #2 singles, was on his way to a probable victory, as he was up 64, 43 when the rain made it impossible to continue.
“It’s too bad the rains had to stop Josh’s match, ” stated Coach P. “He was playing the perfect match for the opponent. Calm and steady, getting everything back and making his opponent have to hit one more shot. It was wearing him down and I liked Josh’s chances of finishing that match with a win.”
The Sailors conclude their season next week with both the conference tournament and regionals.
