From Coach Dittmer:
Our tennis season concluded today with sub-sectionals at East Troy. Nick Kuzoff won his first match via forfeit against Monroe. He then lost to #1 McFarland (Tyson Laux) 6-2, 6-2 in the next round. Despite the loss, he played a good match in which he hustled to track down every ball and make his opponent work to earn every point. Of our players today, I was most impressed with #1 doubles (Cole Kinson and Austin Kaya) and #4 singles (Henry Bresser). Cole and Austin took care of Jefferson in the first round, beating them 6-4, 6-3 with some great net play. They eventually fell to top-seeded Big Foot in the next round 6-2, 6-1. Henry Bresser won a tight battle in first match against Edgerton 7-6(8), 5-7, 6-4. He then lost the next round to #1 McFarland (Jack Newman) 6-1, 6-1. Henry showed a lot of promise with his groundstrokes and I am very optimistic about his tennis future.
Unfortunately, we were unable to advance anyone to Sectionals, but I thought we played good matches and have nothing to hang our heads about. I had a great season coaching these players and look forward to seeing how our younger players grow next season. I will certainly miss our three Seniors, Cole Kinson, Anthony Reed, and captain Joe Creanza. They were great leaders to our team. I can’t wait for next season, go Whippets!
