Boys tennis match against Canal Winchester last Friday turned from a potential nail-biter to a total sweep in the matter of 20 minutes….Raiders ended the match with a straight win of 5-0. The match was close on at least two of the courts but in the last 20 minutes the Raiders rallied and closed out the match.
First singles sophomore Boban Mihajlov settled himself down in a tie-breaker and was able to convert….and first doubles Sophomore Chase Cotner and senior Trevor Templin eaked it out in the end. The rest of the courts won very easily.
Meanwhile, Saturday’s doubles tournament with Newark, Watkins and Big Walnut, did not turn out well for the Raiders except on one court.
Fifth court doubles team of senior and JV captain Jaxon Matan and sophomore Jonathan Leatherwood was the ONLY Raider team that won matches during the day, contributing the most number of games won that day, still not enough for the Raiders to place. Congratulations Jaxon and Jonathan, well done fight.
