Leedy Tops Warsaw At #1 Singles

After a sluggish 1-6 first set, Wawasee #1 singles Zach Leedy found himself among all other courts on Tuesday night against Warsaw: down for the count. Instead of following suit, Leedy played smart, driven tennis and staged an impressive comeback in the second set, winning 7-5 to even the match up against Warsaw’s Caleb Williams.  The third and determining set came down to a 6-all tiebreaker.  Leedy persevered, winning the tiebreaker, keeping Wawasee from being swept.

In post-match media interviews, head coach Shane Staley commented: “Dismal day, but we saw a little spark with Leedy’s match that will hopefully spread among other players on the team. We need more kids with a refuse-to-lose attitude out there on the courts, fighting for every point.  We may be inexperienced, but we need players working outside matches to bridge that gap, focusing on not accepting to be another footnote in a losing culture and history.”

Wawasee dropped the other 4 matches at varsity and all 10 matches at JV at Warsaw.  The Warriors will attempt to rebound at home against Elkhart Memorial on Thursday which will be Wawasee’s senior night.
