WHAT HAPPENED: The Boys Varsity Tennis team played Hastings High School at home and came out victorious with an 8-0 win. The Hawkeyes dominated with every match ending in just two sets.
THEY SAID IT: “The team came together and beat Hastings handily.” “It’s a key win because they’re in our regional.” “The golden set was a very big accomplishment for Collin.” Said junior Kyle Theodore.
KEY MOMENT: Austin Rudolph and Victor Vigil getting the match win in two sets with scores of 6-3 in both. Fighting until the end came up big for this match and helped complete the sweep of wins for every player or pairs of players.
KEY PLAYERS: Collin Vanderhulst played a “golden set” which means he won every point of the set without giving up a single point to the other player. This was a big accomplishment for himself and for the whole team.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN: This adds another 8-0 win under the Hawkeyes belt, making it their third on the season. This means they are ending the season with a 4-4-2 record on the season.
UP NEXT: This was the last match of their season, so the Hawkeyes begin to prepare for next year’s season.
