The Cedar Springs boys varsity tennis team reached the halfway mark to their season last week with a match against Forest Hills Eastern and an invitational at Hamilton High School.

On Wednesday September 9, the Red Hawks competed against Forest Hills Eastern on home courts, which resulted in an 0-8 loss for the Red Hawks.

On Saturday September 12, the Red Hawks traveled to Hamilton High School for an invitational. Several of the Cedar Springs players had very close sets with their opponents. Red Hawk players finishing in second place were #2 singles Karsen Dingman, #3 singles Drew French, #4 singles Austin Nielsen and #2 doubles Ethan Brown and Nick Hibbs. Overall the Cedar Springs Red Hawks came in third place competing against Coopersville, Hamilton and Coloma schools.

“Boys tennis faced some tough competition with a loss to Forest Hills Eastern this week,” noted Coach Katie Unsworth. “At the Hamilton Invitational #2, #3, #4 singles and #2 doubles all took second place and individual medals. #4 singles Austin Nielsen was well on his way to taking first place overall in his flight when unfortunately during his third match suffered a severe sprained ankle. This injury takes him out for the next two weeks. The boys played well. I would like to compliment Jon Baculy who had some incredible winning shots in his match Saturday! I’d also like to compliment Timothy Shovan and Alex Robinson on their tenacity at the net! Way to play guys. We have a talented team and its really quite fun watching all the guys play!”
