SWITZ CITY -- The Northview tennis team won its second consecutive match with a dominant 5-0 win on the road at White River Valley on Monday evening.
"All the guys played well," commented coach Mark Orr. "Our singles players did a real good job and this gets us back to even at 2-2. We made some changes and they seemed to work."
The Knights lost only two games in singles play, getting a 6-1, 6-1 victory from senior Austin Akers at No. 1 singles as well as a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 2 from Clint Reynolds.
"Clint is just the heart and soul of this team," said Orr of his No. 2 player.
In the third singles spot, Carson Kleiber won in straight sets without losing a point, 6-0, 6-0, against Sam Wilson.
The doubles players were perhaps even more powerful, winning both of its matches by a 6-0, 6-0 count.
At No. 1 singles, Matt Nodley teamed with Caleb Mershon to down Garrett Miller and Austin Roudebush and at No. 2, Joey Thomas and Trent Sims matched the effort with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Ricky Anderson and Damian Hiatt.
