Stefan El Base`15 played well at first singles. He started slow, but midway through the match started to dominate play and won the first set 6-4. Having momentum going into the second set, he cemented the win blanking his opponent 6-0. Wyatt Lichtenger`14 played a long two set match against his Lumberjack opponent. His first set was very tight. He was down 4-5 midway through, but won the next game to make it 5-5. He followed by taking the next game to go up 6-5. However, his opponent came back to tie it 6-6 and force the tiebreaker, which Wyatt won handily 7-1. In the second set he started ahead, but at 5-3 his opponent broke his serve to make it 5-4. He, in turn, broke his opponent and won the next game to win the set 6-4, and earn a point for the team by winning the match. Nate Smith`15, normally a doubles player, struggled to find his stride at third singles. Though he had some long rallies and won points during his games, he came away with a 0-6, 0-6 loss. Ben Mooney`16 and Luke Brawley`15 started their match strong, taking the first set 6-4. However, their opponents came back to win the second set 7-5. Due to the fact that Hyde had already sealed the win prior to the start of their third set, they elected to play a tiebreaker in place of a third set. This they won 7-4. Elliot Wang`14 and Richard Liu`14 had a great match at second doubles. The first set went to a tiebreaker that they won 8-6. The two seniors came out in the second set and won easily 6-3. All in all, a strong showing. Our next match is against a very skilled team; Kents Hill School, away at 2pm.
