MV got to finally play on NEW TENNIS COURTS, just not their own…YET! MV travelled to Franklin Central and got a taste of what is to come in winning in dramatic fashion 3-2 over a solid FC team.
#2 dubs Jackson”the Caveman”Dunlavy and Dallas “The Dally-Llama” Turner smashed and blessed their way to 6-1,6-1 first off court win.
#2s Chris “The Vice Principal” Hays disciplined the ball and put his opponent in detention with a 6-2,6-2 win for all the dads out there with tight whips(hair dos).
#1 dubs Justin Lemke and Reece Powell lost 1-6,5-7 to a strong FC team and learned more about how good they can become..
#3 Declan “Paco Taco” Mast lost 5-7,0-6 in a tough 1st ever varsity match.
**It was all tied at 2-2 and came down to #1 singles where Haiden “the Flying Squirrel Big Cat Mouse killer” won the 1st set 6-0 and looked like the 2nd coming of Stan Wawrinka(for tennis fans only).
The 2nd set found the Big Cat lost his catnip and was wanting more of fat nap losing it 3-6.
He then rallied and took the 3rd set to win 6-3 and secure MV’s 2nd win of the season and first win on new tennis courts!
“Grit, Greatness resides in Teammates is something we will rely on all year. I saw our 2 dubs dominate like Kryptonite on Superman. #2 Chris Hays is figuring out he is a really, really good tennis player and not just a pretty face. #1s Haiden Rose was so so money tonight. He got the giant coach hug for his heart, confidence and his ability to play great under extreme pressure…he may be the….DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH! 1d learned a lot tonight and 3s hopefully did too. These boys are practicing harder than any recent team and it is paying off early. More work to do but the journey is Glorious so far.” Coach Gabe
