Week of March 12th This week the Boys’ Tennis team traveled to Troy, IL where they took part in the Triad Knights Invitational. After traveling down Friday night, the boys woke up Saturday ready to play and battle both their opponents and against the weather. After putting in some solid weeks of doubles work, the Hornets found themselves advancing on the backs of their doubles teams. In the first round, they beat Mascoutah 3-2 after the doubles team of Dhruv Vaze and Jacob John pulled out a tough match at the first doubles position. In the second round, the Hornets beat a tough O’Fallon team 3-2 led by seniors Namit Sambare and Josh Eisenschenk, who set the pace for the rest of the doubles teams. In the championship match, the Hornets took on U-High, and ultimately got beat up a bit up and down the courts. Without several of their top players out, the Hornets fell 0-9, but saw some excellent singles play from freshman Aaron John. With a lot of work to do, the Hornets are eager to hit the practice courts before they head back down South in two weeks to take on some of the top teams in the Midwest in a tourney hosted by recent national champion Edwardsville High School.
