Middleville played a solid match against Wayland to take a 6-2 win from the Wildcats. Our singles players dominated all four singles matches in straight sets. The first three singles flights only lost two games in their matches. Brooke Thompson got off to a slow start but recovered to post a very solid win in her fourth singles match.
Out doubles teams continue to improve, but we are still struggling with finding proper court position at times. Bashore/Zoet and Cuison/Nowinsky are playing solid tennis. Both teams are getting better at extending points and being patient. Net play is improving, but we still need to improve at a faster pace to close out a successful season.
The team stands at 8-3 this season and 2-3 in the conference with Wyoming the lone conference team remaining on the schedule. We play Wyoming away today and conference Saturday.
Next week we finish with Plainwell Monday, Hastings Tuesday and Regionals at Grand Rapids Christian Thursday.
