Horde tennis players crush North Warren

4-9 003By Jaime Thomas

In their first match of the season, Horde tennis players took down North Warren in a 7-0 blow.

“There were five kids that had their first varsity match yesterday. We are young but we will be OK,” Coach Terry Wheeler said. And OK they were with seven singles and doubles matches that left their opponent nearly scoreless.

Joey Lea started off the singles with a 10-0 defeat over North Warren’s Max May. Ean Smith followed with a 10-1 win against the Cougars, and Alexis Smith and Matthew Bixby left no room for error with two 10-0 matches, respectively.

Bixby effortlessly served and returned over and over to opponent Eric Cooper. Kyle LaPlante rounded out the singles dominating 10-2.

And the doubles teams played equally as well. Nathaniel Palmer and Dan Truso gave up only one point to the Cougars, winning by nine. Andy Williams and Mathew Decker didn’t get a chance to play but gained a 10-0 win for the Horde by forfeit.

The team will have their next match Friday at 4:15 p.m.
