To extend their win streak to four matches the boys tennis team had to really dig in and come up with a true team effort. Which is exactly what they did as they just barely squeaked by Carroll. Senior Matthew Wright had a challenging opponent and first set but managed to win his court in straight sets. 2nd doubles Kendale and Dawson picked up a key win has they really had to fight off an evenly matched opponent. They played the most dramatic tiebreaker of the year so far as they had to win it 11-9 and save several set points against them. So then the match got very interesting after Andrew and the doubles team of Keith and Austin failed to get wins at their spots. That meant 2nd singles John Altom needed to pull off a victory for Eaton to secure the match. After winning the 1st set 6-1 that looked very feasible. However, when he dropped the 2nd set 5-7 after his opponent stepped up play it really became an uncertainty. Luckily, John regained his focus and jumped out to an early lead and got the momentum back he had earlier. Winning the 3rd and final set 6-1. That was a really good win for our team. It was a quality opponent with a 7-4 record and to win it in that narrow fashion shows the younger guys that not only every court matters but every point matters as well. The win brings the Eagles to 7-7 overall with matches against Dayton Christian and Edgewood left to play head to head. The Eagles now have their sights set on the SWBL Tournament.
