Comets' Duke earns runner-up finish at New Prairie Invite.


Knox Invitational

Northwestern earned a second-place finish in Knox’s eight-team invite.

The Tigers’ top showing came at No. 1 doubles where Will Devaul and Joel Austin went a perfect 3-0 and won the title.

Also for the Tigers, No. 1 singles player Clayton Douglass (2-1) and the No. 2 doubles team of Kyle Douglass and Brayden Chou (2-1) had runner-up finishes.

“I was proud of our whole team. They kept their composure and competed all day which is all I could ask for as a coach,” NW skipper Matt Woods said. “Noah Cardwell stepped in at 3 singles for us and got a big win. The thing with these individual tournaments is that each win is worth at least some points. Our guys really took that to heart and put the team above themselves.

“We are very young but the experience these young guys are getting is priceless. Will and Joel finally got their mojo back at 1 doubles after struggling for a week or so and it’s just in time for the home stretch.”

Richmond 4, Kokomo 1Muncie C. 4, Kokomo 1

Against Richmond, Kokomo’s No. 1 doubles team of Erik Bowen and Brad Dockemeyer won 6-1, 7-6. And against Muncie Central, the No. 2 tandem of Jake Farkas and Blake Brookshire won 6-1, 6-0.

“I really feel like our guys fought and we competed hard in both matches,” Kokomo coach Shawn Flanary said. “The scores may not show it but they were very winnable and close, we battled every spot. We had a good day at doubles. Muncie Central came in with I think an 11-3 record, Richmond came in with a 9-3 record, just two good teams.”

Kokomo is 5-11 overall and 1-4 in NCC play.


Eastbrook Invitational

Eastern won the four-team tournament, beating Taylor 25-15, 25-16 in the opening round and beating North Miami 26-24, 26-24 in the title match.

“It was a good day. I felt like it was probably the most consistent that we’ve played this season so I was very happy with that,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said,

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
