From Coach Bob Long:
The Chillicothe boys' tennis team (6-4) hosted St Joseph Benton
at Danner Park, Monday, May 5. The Hornets were victorious
over the depleted Cardinals 9-0. The Benton team struggling
with adversity fielded a team of only four varsity players.
Gabe Poling beat Carlos Montoya 8-0. Nate McKiddy
defeated Austin Hendrix 8-1. Garrett Peterson and Nathan Sims
each won 8-0 against their Benton opponents, Eduardo Cruz and Austin
Wethered respectively. In doubles action,
Gabe Poling and Nathan Sims beat the duo of Montoya and
Hendrix 8-0. The team of Isaiah Barron and Lane Bonderer
finished the sweep by defeating the pair of Cruz and Wethered 8-0.
The Chillicothe team took care of business.
Knowing we had the upper hand, all of the players focused and got
lop-sided victories. The Benton squad competed with a good
attitude, trying to make the best out of a difficult
