The boys’ tennis team began its season Monday, Aug. 19 with a scrimmage match at Marion against the Giants. Those two schools are among the top tennis programs in Indiana with Marion snapping Delta’s 16-year regional title streak in 2011 and then Delta regaining the regional title in 2012. They both are expected to contend for the regional crown in 2013. In the scrimmage, no team scores were kept.
Junior Conner Neal and sophomores Joe Wegener and Jack Sanders each went 3-0 in their matches at the scrimmage. Seniors Bradley Wuthrich and Collin Mercer, juniors Jay Robillard and Nick Wilson, and freshman Alec Robillard each finished 2-0.
The Eagles will start the season for real in the Jeffersonville Invitational on Friday, Aug. 23 and Saturday, Aug. 24. This 8-team tournament will feature at least six state-ranked teams and is annually one of the state’s top invitationals.
