Men’s tennis loses on the wire, girls win easily


(April 7, 2022) It was the final point in the men’s tennis team’s season-opening loss to Sturgis East at home on Tuesday. Meanwhile, on the continent, the women’s tennis team took care of business with a decisive 4-1 victory above the storm. “I thought we played well today,” said the boys’ head coach, David Cheever. “It was our first game and we had five match points (we didn’t convert). I think we just needed to relax a bit. It comes down to training.

With four of the five matches in the books, the boys were tied 2-2 with Sturgis East and the winner of the best doubles match between Hunter Gross and Aidan Sullivan of Nantucket and Colby Hall and Ben Halunen of Storm would decide everything.

Gross and Sullivan won the first set 7-5 and led 5-2 in the second set before the Sturgis East duo fought back to win 7-6.
