Comments from Coach Dittmer:

This was a flighted tournament which means that everyone was bracketed against other players at their flight (all #1 singles together, all #2 singles together, etc.).

As a school, our players only won three matches on the day. across all flights. This was in part due to us missing some of our key players which meant a lot of guys had to play in a tougher spot than usual in our lineup. The other factor was that the teams in this tournament were really good. It was certainly among the best tennis we have faced this season. Arno Crowley got one of our three wins at #4 singles and finished 6th on the day. Our other wins came from our #2 doubles team of Slate Spear and Henry Bresser. The duo played very well and took second place at their flight. The final team scores have yet to be calculated, but I am guessing Whitewater finished in 8th place.

Despite all the losses, I was happy with our players’ effort and attitude throughout the day. After losing a lot of matches so handily it is easy to get down on yourself, but all of our guys stayed positive. It was also a cool opportunity for some of our JV players to get varsity action.

Our season continues on Monday with a home meet against Edgerton.

Comments from Coach Dittmer:

We won the meet 4-3 and improved to 2-3 in conference play. Big Foot has bested us the last couple years, so it was great to see our boys come out and play really well to get this win.

Slate Spear ended a losing streak tonight by playing a solid all-around match to win 6-0, 6-2. Austin Kaja added to his impressive season with another win at #2 singles. He is now 8-2 this year which is the top record on our team. Henry lost at #4 singles 6-3, 6-3. I did’t feel like he did anything to lose himself the match, but instead his opponent just came up with some really nice plays. Our #1 and #2 doubles teams took one the chin tonight. I didn’t think they played poorly, but Big Foot just had a couple of really nice doubles teams. Our #3 doubles team of Ramon Wence and Arno Crowley took another close victory by beating Big Foot in a 3rd set tiebreaker. They have continued to improve with each and every meet. With the meet tied at 3-3, everything came down to the #3 singles match featuring Nick Kuzoff from Whitewater and Nolan Peyer of Big Foot. They had an incredible match that lasted an hour longer than any of the others. Both teams had their players lined up against the fence watching and cheering on their players (picture taken from a parent is attached). It was a pretty cool scene. In the end, Nick won the battle by a score 7-6(5), 5-7, 1-0(2). I am so proud of our Captain’s effort and poise in such a critical match.

Our season continues tomorrow with varsity tourney in Beaver Dam.
