|Story by Coach
The Chillicothe Hornets boys' tennis team (1-0) traveled to
Carrollton on Tuesday. Led by seniors Gabe Poling and Garrett
Peterson, Chillicothe won 9-0. The competition began with
doubles and Gabe Poling pairing up with junior Lane Bonderer.
The Hornet duo won 8-0 in the number one doubles spot versus
Luke Jenkins and Mike Greer. With junior Nate McKiddy at FFA
competition, juniors Brandon Lamp and Cody Evans defeated the
Carrollton team of Noland Glenn and Luke Brownley, 8-0.
Garrett Peterson and Steen Anthony made it a shut out in
doubles winning 8-0 against Bryce Fitzpatrick and Payton Barry
In singles action, Gabe showed little mercy on Luke Jenkins
winning 8-0. Garrett Peterson and Brandon Lamp each won 8-0
over Mike Greer and Noland Glenn respectively. Cody Evans
getting his first match in varsity singles
beat Bryce Fitzpatrick, 8-2. Lane Bonderer defeated Luke
Brownly 8-0 and Steen Anthony beat Payton Barry 8-2.
I'm excited to begin the season. It looks to be a
competitive season with seniors Gabe Poling and Garrett
Peterson returning and with the group of talented juniors
having a year of experience, led by Nate McKiddy and
Brandon Lamp. Cody Evans was able to win his singles match,
showing patience against a consistent opponent. Steen Anthony
continues to gain confidence in his improving ground strokes,
happily playing in Nate's absence. The Hornets travel to
Excelsior Springs Thursday.
