Kashner clutch as Granville tennis gets by Greenwich

Nick Kashner took the number five singles match which made the difference as Granville edged Greenwich April 27 in Adirondack League tennis at home.

On a day when the wind gusted with enough force to occasionally stop all but the hardest hit tennis balls in mid-air Granville came out on top against tough competition.

Joey Lea dropped his first regular season match in more than two seasons battling back to fall 10-6 to Tyler Sheldon. Granville swept the remaining singles matches however for the win as Sam McDermott scored a shutout win at number two. Garrett Brown and Kashner took 10-1 wins and Kayla Wheeler won 10-2.

Granville’s doubles teams did not far as well as their singles counterparts, with Jordan Bardin and Maria Stomski falling 10-5 and Christian Carr and Taylor, 10-1. Head coach Terry Wheeler said the swirling, gusting winds certainly added a challenge factor, but it was no reason to postpone the match. “Well, everybody’s got to play in it, that makes it fair,” Wheeler said. Granville improved to 8-1 in the Adirondack League and overall.
