NW volley squad wins local clash.

Northwestern topped Maconaquah 3-2 in a Mid-Indiana Conference boys tennis match Monday on the Purple Tigers’ courts.

Northwestern swept the doubles matches. Will Devaul and Joel Austin were 6-4, 6-1 winners at No. 1 and Kyle Miller and Kohl McCully were 6-1, 6-1 winners at No. 2.

The Tigers’ other point came at No. 2 singles where Kyle Douglass took a 6-1, 6-1 win.

“It was a good win for us,” Northwestern coach Matt Woods said. “With it being an MIC match and with us falling in a few tough matches lately, it was nice to be on the winning side of a 3-2 score. Doubles played really well and were pretty crisp at the net with their angles and overheads.

“We are still experimenting with lineups for sectionals, but it’s starting to become more clear. I’m extremely happy with our focus as a team lately.”

Maconaquah’s points came from Adam Harts (7-6, 6-1 winner at No. 1 singles) and Ian Morris (6-4, 6-0 winner at No. 3 singles).


The Titans (5-2) kept a trend going with their 4-1 win at Delphi.

“Every match we’ve had so far has been a 4-1,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said.

The Titans swept the singles matches against the Oracles. Jack Lipchik was a 6-1, 6-1 winner at No. 1, Camden Kimbler was a 6-1, 6-4 winner at No. 2 and Casey Glick took a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 3. The Titans’ fourth point came at No. 1 doubles where Austin Douglas and Cole Schroeder posted a 6-4, 7-5 win.

Wise noted Kimbler showed good fight in rallying from a 3-0 hole in his second set.

Singles play has been a strength for the Titans. Lipchik and Kimbler own 6-1 records.

“Jack was at 2 singles last year and was really solid for me. Camden and Casey were doubles guys, so they’ve come up and really stepped it up for our 2 and 3 singles spots,” Wise said. “And 1 doubles has been a solid spot for us, too.”
