The Cedar Springs varsity boy’s tennis team had a busy schedule last week, with two home matches and one away, before they begin their conference and regional tournaments.

On Monday, September 29, Cedar Springs played on their home court against Sparta, which ended with a 2-6 loss for the Red Hawks. The players with wins over Sparta were #1 doubles team Karsen Dingman and Austin Nielson, and #2 doubles team Ethan Brown and Jon Baculy.

On Wednesday, October 1, the team traveled to Kellogsville, which resulted in a 6-2 win for the Red Hawks. The players with winning matches for Cedar Springs were #1 singles Blake Fisk, #2 singles Nick Fennessey, #1 doubles Karsen Dingman and Austin Nielson, #2 doubles Ethan Brown and Jon Baculy, #3 doubles Jared Liggett and Nick Hibbs and #4 doubles Jesse Empie and Tim Shovan. #4 singles Dylan Kolasa made a great effort to score an additional win for Cedar Springs by going into a 10-point tie-breaker, with his Kellogsville opponent.

The next day the Red Hawks were back in action on their home courts with Spring Lake, where they lost 2-6. The players scoring wins for Cedar Springs were #2 singles Nick Fennessey and #3 singles Drew French. #1 singles Blake Fisk went into a 10-point tie breaker with his Spring Lake opponent and #4 singles Dylan Kolasa scored two very close sets with his opponent, both making a great effort to gain additional wins for Cedar Springs.

Coach Katie Unsworth commented, “This has been a very exciting season for varsity boy’s tennis. We have several players vying for first and second places at our regional tournament. This has been our first winning season in the past three years. Something we can all be proud of! We have a young team with some depth. Not only has this been a great season, but the next couple of years should only get better!”
