Warrior Tennis Week In Review

Overall, on paper, it seemed like a disappointing week for Warrior Tennis, as the Wawasee boys team dropped 3 straight matches to Goshen, Fairfield and Northridge.  But the losses didn’t quite touch on the vast improvement the team has made since last season. The young Warrior squad, which has all but one player to return next year, has developed into an extremely competitive team, one that is building to become one of the most complete varsity rosters in recent history.

On Tuesday, the Warriors travelled to Goshen, dropping 4 matches before play was suspended due to rain.  #3 singles Cal Heinisch will resume his match today.

Wednesday saw the continuation of this past Saturday’s Varsity Duals which were also suspended due to rain.  Fairfield visited Wawasee to resume play and beat the Warriors 4-1, despite extremely improved performances by #2 singles Nathan Perek and the #2 doubles team of Evan Krueger and Dylan Staley who forced their opponents into a third set.  The lone victory came once again from Cal Heinisch who beat his opponent in straight sets.

Northridge came to town Thursday night.  Cal Heinisch was once again victorious, winning in three sets.  Nate Haines played a tough 3-set match, falling just short.  The #1 doubles team of Tim Conley and Cameron Brill were gaining momentum into a forced third set, only to succumb to injury (Brill, ankle) to force the stoppage of play. A second set tiebreaker for the #2 doubles team of Evan Krueger and Dylan Staley ended an impressive comeback.

The strides the Warriors’ team has made in a short period is cause for excitement and a bright future for the team.

Wawasee will host Warsaw this Tuesday in their final home match of the year.
