The Sweet Sixteen

Bob Carter is still on the job reporting for the Boys Tennis team:

The school year may just about be over, but the Boys Varsity Tennis season is still going strong.

Quick Recap:  A total of 5 players qualified for the Southwest District Division II tournament – the strongest showing for Wyoming in the past 8+ years: Chris Murray at singles, Nolan Morley/Kieren Thomas at doubles, and Myles Bourbon/Will Carter at doubles.

District play is divided into two rounds: elimination play (on 5/20), and seeding play (on 5/23).  Even after some great end-of-year tennis, Chris and Nolan/Kieran lost in the elimination rounds.  However, Myles/Will won both of their matches on 5/20 (including a win versus a very good team from Indian Hill) to advance to seeding play.

During seeding play on 5/23, Will and Myles faced Cincinnati Country Day and Milton Union, and came away with two more wins - and are now the Division II District Doubles Champions!  Between the sectional and district tournaments, Myles and Will are: 8 matches played, and 8 matches won. As such, Myles and Will qualified for the state tournament as one of the 1st seeds – WAY TO GO!

Across the state, roughly 400 doubles teams started tournament play. We are now down to the final 16 doubles teams (in Division II) which will meet up at the state tournament starting on Friday (5/29) in Columbus. If they can win their first two matches, Will and Myles continue match play on Saturday (5/30), also in Columbus.

GOOD LUCK to Myles Bourbon and Will Carter as they play in the upcoming state Doubles Division II tournament!
Thanks to Bob Carter for the report and the Great pictures.
