Kokomo coach Shawn Flanary noted Mississinewa features a strong singles lineup, which made Craig Simon’s 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 1 a key point. The Indians won the other singles matches.

“Craig played a great match,” Flanary said. “I knew that very well could be the deciding point. He just controlled play from the beginning. His game is really starting to come together.”

The Kats swept the doubles matches for their other points. Erik Bowen and Brad Dockemeyer were 6-2, 6-1 winners at No. 1 and Blake Brookshire and Jake Farkas were 6-1, 6-3 winners at No. 2.

“Our doubles were too aggressive and too consistent for them,” Flanary said.

Eastern 4, Madison-Grant 1

Led by a sweep of the singles matches, the Comets beat the visiting Argylls for their first win of the season.

In singles play, Logan Colwell was a 6-4, 6-3 winner at No. 1, Ryan Manfred was a 6-2, 6-3 winner at No. 2 and Austin Chase cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 3. Chase upped his record to 4-0.

Also for Eastern (1-3), the No. 1 doubles team of Zach Walker and Robbie Walling took a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 win.

“We played a tough tournament over the weekend at the Cass Invite where we lost a few 3-2 matches so to come out [Monday] and get the win was nice,” Eastern coach Nick Sale said, noting Manfred provided a highlight with his play at No. 2 singles. “He is a freshman, got his first varsity win. I know he was a little tired there at the end, coming off the weekend, but he battled it out. He is showing a lot of promise.”
