Sailors and Maroons End in 4-4 Tie in Boys Tennis

The South Christian varsity tennis team battled Holland Christian Wednesday afternoon, and what started as a commanding SC “lead” ended in a hard fought 4-4 tie.

The Sailors jumped out to a 3-0 lead in match victories, as they won convincingly at 1D, 2D and 3D. Holland Christian then claimed two wins over the Sailors at 1 and 3 singles. From there, things got tight.

Three matches went into a 3rd set. The next match to finish was 4D, where Tate Christians and Collin Pollatz were able to hold of a Maroon comeback, winning 63, 26, 62.

At this point, SC had 4 wins with two left on the court. Josh DeHaan at 2S and Nolan Diekevers at 4S were entrenched in two very difficult matches. Josh DeHaan had all he could handle in Robert Frieling, a quick and intelligent player. Josh fell behind early in the 1st set, losing 6-2, but was able to even the score, winning the hard-fought 2nd set 6-4. In the third set, HC was able to close it out, winning 6-3 in the third set. Overall score: SC 4, HC 3.

Meanwhile, on the next court, Nolan Diekevers participated in the toughest match of the day. Nolan claimed the 1st set by the score of 6-4. After losing the 2nd set 7-5, the HC player took the match in a super tie-break, winning 10-6.

Coach Pothoven praised all his players for the excellent effort. “To my knowledge, South Christian has never defeated Holland Christian in tennis…ever…, so to come away with a tie certainly is an accomplishment. I know a couple of guys are going to feel the sting of losing a tough 3rd set, but that is the nature of tennis. You can be so close to victory only to have it escape. I’m so proud of all the players, but especially Josh and Nolan. There is NO quit in those two. Once I saw how those matches were going, I knew they were going to fight until the last point. That’s all a coach can ask for. As a team, to come out of this with a tie is certainly special. These players continue to improve and develop and we look forward to what the rest of the season holds.”

The JV Sailors began conference play yesterday against the Wolves of Wyoming. The first half had several fast attacks by the Wolves which the Sailor defense was able to defend against. The scoring began when Thom DeVries received a well placed pass from Jon DeVries (brothers from another mother:) Thom coolly carried the ball into the box and shot past the keeper for the first goal. The second half saw the Sailors in control of possession ad Carson Nitz was able to double the score on a solo run which he finished nicely around a charging keeper.

Game Recap

The Sailor offense showed methodical patience in the first half. They only possessed the ball 3 times, but scored on all 3 possessions. The defense was stingy all night long and pitched a shutout until the closing minute of the game. The key play came just before half time when the Sailors went for it on 4th and 7 on their own side of the field. Chase Bradman connected with Hudson Oetman on a broken play that not only got the first down, but went the distance for the touchdown. From then on the defense took over to give SCHS the victory.
