The Northview Knights lost their second tennis match of the season, falling to an experienced North Central squad, 3-2.

Northview got a win by Caleb Mershon, 4-6, 6-0, 6-4 at No. 2 singles, defeating Bobby Swaby. The doubles team of Trent Sims and Caleb Andrews also was a winner, defeating Caleb Gilman and Jordan Stefanik, 6-1, 7-5.

"North Central like Bloomfield, is dominated by seniors who have played four years," coach Mark Orr said. "(Caleb) Mershon played really well in pulling out his match. Trent and Caleb played very well and will continue to get better. We had our chances but No. 2 doubles couldn't pull it out.

"I thought Sam (Miller) and Dillon (Reynolds) played great for only their second match together," Orr continued regarding his No. 2 doubles team. "This was a tough loss but once the doubles teams play together more they will be tough to beat. The singles players will get better with each match. Junior Varsity looked good. Daniel Eaglin and Skyler Holifield looked good winning 6-1."
