The Blue Springs South boys tennis team team didn’t have much trouble dispatching Park Hill South in an 8-1 non-conference victory Monday at Young Park.
No. 1 singles player Chase Klosener won 9-7. Wyatt Walker (8-3), Patterson Fallis (8-0), Sammy Klosener (8-2) and Justin Cooper (8-1) also claimed singles victories for the host Jaguars.
In doubles play Chase Klosener and Walker won 8-1, Spencer Jorgensen and Fallis prevailed 8-5, and Sammy Klosener and Cooper won 8-2.
“Chase Klosener had a close match that went back and forth,” South coach Nathan Mooney said. “He faced a lot of adversity toward the end and was able to come out on top. The rest of varsity had some good matches in singles and really solid matches for doubles.”
WILLIAM CHRISMAN 6, BELTON 3: Chrisman’s top two singles players didn’t lose Monday and that led to a non-conference victory against the Pirates at Santa Fe Trail Park.
No. 1 singles player Brett Wilson won 8-4 and No. 2 Pierrick Gourlet prevailed 8-1. No. 3 Dakoda James (8-1) and No. 4 Cayson Woods (8-6) also claimed singles victories.
Wilson and Gourlet took their No. 1 doubles match 8-2 and Sam Hawley and Brandon Kuhlman teamed up to win No. 3 doubles 8-2.
TRUMAN 7, WINNETONKA 2: The Patriots started off Monday’s match winning two out of three doubles matches and then proceeded to dominate in singles during a non-conference win over host Winnetonka Monday.
No. 1 singles player Blake Savidge won 8-0, No. 2 Bryce Idoni won 8-4, No. 3 Brock Thomas won 9-7, No. 4 Cooper Clements won 8-4 and No. Keegan Welch won 8-6.
In doubles, Savidge and Clements won 6-2, and Welch and Nestor Olivas won 6-1.
"The match started with singles, and it was a workmanlike effort up and down the ladder today,” Truman coach Scott Lett said. “Players were focused and executing game plans and strategies. After winning the duel with five singles victories before even starting doubles, I think players lost their focus a bit. We need to keep the big goal in mind and understand that every moment is a chance to improve and get better."
Truman’s junior varsity team also won 7-2.
