0 8

With a hard fought win over a very good Hudsonville team last week in the District Finals, the Boys Varsity Tennis Team propelled themselves to the State Finals for the first time in 4 years. The Panthers entered the Team Tournament as the 13th seeded team in a field of 16 total teams competing for the D1 State Title. They played 4th seeded Northville in the first round. Welcoming the challenge, the panthers came out hitting hard taking the lead early in 4 of the 8 flights. However, Northville showed why they were deserving of the 4th seed and overcame the Panthers at all 8 flights. There was fantastic play by both teams and the panthers learned a lot seeing a top 5 team in the state. With a strong off-season ahead, the Panthers squad that only graduates two players looks solidify itself as a top 10 team in the state. The boys know it will take a great deal of work, but are looking forward to it! Full match results below:
