Leading to the end of the Red Hawks boys tennis season was the conference meet on Saturday, October 3.

“As is the traditional weather situation, the winds were gusting and wind chills were in the 30’s. Great tennis weather!” remarked Coach Katie Unsworth.

The team’s conference record going in to the tournament was 4-4-1, and they were tied with Northview for 3rd place. “Despite the weather conditions, the boys were able to get in some decent matches but at the end of the day, finished 5th overall, due to some upset matches with Greenville,” said Unsworth.  First singles Blake Fisk received the all-conference award for the Red Hawks team. Taking first and second in the conference meet were Forest Hills Northern and Forest Hills Eastern.

The final tournament of the varsity boys tennis season was the regional tournament held in Big Rapids on Thursday, October 8.

A 2015 regional realignment made the idea of going to state an actual achievable goal for the Red Hawks!” noted Unsworth. “Competition included:  Petoskey, Cadillac, Bay City John Glen, Clio, Goodrich and Fremont. It was an exciting day of tennis with six out of seven flights advancing to the second round. The #1 Doubles team Dylan Kolasa and Jared Liggett managed to upset the number two seed Clio in an epic two set battle. The two players had brought their ‘A’ game and took out the competition from Clio but unfortunately succumbed to the superior skills of Petoskey in the final round. Kolasa and Liggett took second place overall in the #1 doubles flight. Way to go guys. All of the boys played extremely well and, as it turned out, the Red Hawks came in third place.  The top two teams, whom advanced to the state tournament, were Petoskey and Cadillac.”

She said the team would be losing two seniors this year: Blake Fisk and Ethan Brown. “But with eight returning senior players next year, we have our eyes set on State. Thank you guys for an incredible season this year!” added Unsworth.

Their final match record was 7-4-1.
