MVP(s): Austin Haverdink and Grant Wolfram played First Doubles for Hamilton this year and finished with a record of 30-1. Both are seniors so the team is hoping for some younger players to step up and fill their empty shoes.

Most Improved: Spencer Boeve was Fourth Doubles this year and became the first tennis player in Hamilton history to play on the second day of State Finals.

Effects of Graduation: Both First Doubles(Grant and Austin) and First Singles (Justin Folkert) are graduating seniors this year and both had impressive seasons. First Doubles was undefeated going into the State Finals and Justin Folkert said the Hamilton career wins record beating the previous record at the beginning of the season.

Young Up and Comers: Freshman Jarrett Folkert who played second singles this year, will most likely take his brother’s, Justin Folkert, spot for the First Singles. Sophomore Chase Hagen, who played Fourth Doubles (alongside senior Nicklas Grifhorst), will be coming back also.
