Cedar Springs Tennis opened the season with their own inivitational this past Saturday competing against Sparta, Thornapple-Kellog, and Muskegon Catholic Central. Cedar Springs finished in 2nd place 2 points behind Muskegon Catholic Central.

Cedar’s tennis team has an enthusiastic, renewed line-up this year, with a cluster of juniors, freshmen, and one senior. Playing at #1 singles is junior Brooke Gust. She brings lots of experience having played #2 last season and sometimes #1. Brooke has a great all around game with superior court coverage and game competitiveness. Brooke’s classmate and friend, Mackenzie Frederick, is playing the #2 singles spot. Mackenzie was at #1 doubles last season so this will be her first year playing singles in league competition.

Beyond the singles are the doubles. The #1 doubles team htis season is the team of Amber Dunham and jessica Naffziger. Both juniors, and friends, played together las at #3 and #4 doubles. Amber and Jess seem to be ready to take on the top challenge in doubles this season as evident by their straight set win over Big Rapids in the season’s dual opener. They have a great attitude for learning and work well toether in tough situations, as proven last year. The remaining doubles teams consist of Paige Gebhardt and Samantha Alger at #2, Lindsay Boughton, our only senior, and Ellen Pike at #3, Jessica Blackmer and Giovana Paim at #4. Ellen and Lindsay won their division at #3 doubles this past weekend at the Cedar Springs Tourney. The remaining players, Amber Barnes, Tranaya Palma, Kaithlyn Caron, and Alicia Monterusso are playing exhibition and may move into the top 12 as the season progresses.
