Massie stays unbeaten at top of league standings


WILMINGTON — Matching New Richmond’s unbeaten league record, Clinton-Massie defeated Wilmington 4-1 Tuesday in SBAAC American Division tennis on the WHS courts.

The Falcons go to 4-0 in the league. New Richmond is 3-0.

“I was very happy with our team’s focus,” CM coach Rod Amburgy said. “Garret Karns played one of his best matches of the year. He started strong and kept it going.”

Wilmington is 1-3 in the American Division.

“We played well on most courts,” WHS head coach Steve Reed said. “Alex Lazic stepped up big time and was playing some of his best tennis. If he can keep playing at that level it will pay off down the road.”

The match of the day was the lone WHS win, a second doubles triumph by Asher Fudge and Steven Collins. The Hurricane duo lost the first set 4-6 then rallied for the win by taking the third-set tiebreaker 7-3.

“Steven and Asher are really starting to click,” said Reed. “They pulled out a tough third set tiebreaker and have good momentum going in to (Wednesday’s) match at Goshen.”

Massie’s Alex Jones, Garret Karns and Avden Faucett are all unbeaten in SBAAC singles matches while Connor Stulz and Braydon Green are still undefeated in league doubles matches.
