Tennis team takes down opponents

tennisBy Jaime Thomas

In a sweeping match, Granville defeated the Whitehall tennis team 7-0 on Friday at home.

Both Joey Lea and Matthew Bixby crushed their Railroader opponents in 10-0 matches. Ean Smith defeated Ryan St Clair 10-3, while Kyle LaPlante took down Zach Rice 10-4. For the girls, Alexis Smith defeated Rachel Aubin 10-1.

Doubles team Dan Truso and Emily Campbell worked together to defeat Faith Eaton and Matt Austin 10-2. And LeAnn Rees and Kassie Ambrosi didn’t get to play but took home a 10-0 forfeit.

In yet another victory for this spring, the Horde tennis team overtook Greenwich 5-2 on Wednesday.

Though the Witches gave Granville players more competition than they’ve been used to this season, it wasn’t enough to take them down.

For the singles, Joey Lea defeated Max English 10-3, and Ean Smith beat Brendan DiSanto 10-4. Matthew Bixby and Kyle LaPlante also won their singles matches.

Alexis Smith lost to Greenwich’s Trevor Braymer, but it was a close 10-8 match. Doubles team Nathaniel Palmer and Andy Williams defeated the Witches’ Joe Oswald and Scott Thomas, while Daniel Truso and Emily Campbell fell to Peter Haynes and Riley Vandewater.

The Horde is now 4-1 in the league and 4-1 overall.
