The Cedar Springs varsity boys tennis team started their season on a positive note with a home match against Fruitport, on August 24, that resulted in a 7-1 victory for the Red Hawks. All flights won except #4 singles; an injured Austin Nielsen was forced to default. On Wednesday, August 26, the Red Hawks traveled to Grant, where they captured a second win 6-2. All singles players won their matches, along with the #3 and #4 doubles teams.

“We are excited about the 2015 season, as we have a very solid team this year, with eight returning juniors that have very strong serves

and great strategic instincts on the court!” said Coach Katie Unsworth. “Heading up the team at 1 singles is senior Blake Fisk, who has been playing since freshmen year and is an incredibly strong all-round player. At 2 singles we have junior Karsen Dingman who is displaying a wicked serve this year. We are anticipating the return of another winning season from junior Drew French at 3 singles. New to 4 singles is junior Austin Nielsen whom we are anticipating great results despite an unfortunate early season injury.  At 1 Doubles we have juniors Dylan Kolasa and Jared Liggett.  Dylan is an all-round solid player and is able to put the ball where he wants it to go, and Jared has a wicked serve. Definitely a winning combination! At 2 Doubles we have senior Ethan Brown and sophomore Nick Hibbs.  Ethan is our fastest athlete on the court, and gets to and returns the most difficult shots. Nick is a strong up and coming player with solid ground strokes. These guys have great energy out on the court. Juniors Jonathon Baculy and Timothy Shovan at 3 doubles are not willing to lose. They play for the win and leave it all on the court. Freshman Dane Conely and junior Alex Robinson complete the team at 4 doubles. Both are new to varsity tennis and in just three short weeks have made positive advances in their tennis playing skills. We are looking forward to one of our best seasons yet.”
