CRAWFORDSVILLE -- The Greencastle tennis team traveled to Crawfordsville High School Saturday for the Macy Tennis Invitational. Against some tough competition, the Tiger Cubs came home with a seventh-place finish.
"It was another learning experience for us," GHS coach Bart Spencer said.
No. 2 singles player Ty Fauvergue was the high finisher for the Tiger Cubs, placing fourth in the No. 2 draw. The senior opened with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Washington. In his second match, he lost to the Lake Central player 6-3, 6-3. In his final match of the day, Fauvergue lost to Edgewood 6-3, 6-1.
At No. 1 singles, David Cath placed fifth. After opening with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 loss to Lake Central, the junior bounced back with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Edgewood. Cath defeated to Lowell 6-1, 6-1 in the fifth-place match.
At No. 3, Logan Grzesiek opened with a 6-3, 6-0 loss to Crawfordsville before bouncing back with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Lowell. In the fifth-place match, the senior fell to Lake Central 6-1, 6-1.
The young GHS doubles teams struggled on the day, with both finishing eighth. The No. 1 team of Vic Ness and Joey Kass lost to Terre Haute North, Washington and Rensselaer. At No. 2, Dustin York and Cy Spencer fell to Rensselaer, Crawfordsville and Edgewood.
Terre Haute North dominated the tournament, winning at all five slots and nearly doubling the point total of second-place Lake Central.
"We have three weeks until sectional and that's what we need to focus on," Spencer commented.
