Eastern golfers better Cass at American Legion

Western, NW post 3-2 wins in tennis.

(Continued)

Also for Western (1-1), Justin Groothuis and Vito Pulverenti were 6-3, 6-3 winners at No. 1 doubles and Luke Florek and Kaleb Howard were 6-1, 6-2 winners at No. 2 doubles.

“We have a very young varsity, so it was not just our first win of the season, it was the first varsity wins for the four doubles players. I was happy to see them win,” Western coach Andrew Miller said. “It was 2-2 and it came down to 1 singles. They were locked up 4-all in the second set and I was very proud of our only senior, Judson, for keeping it from going three sets. I thought he composed himself really well.”

Northwestern 3, Frankfort 2

No. 3 singles player Kyle Douglass dropped his first set 4-6, but battled back for wins in the next two sets (6-4, 6-0) to give Northwestern the victory. The Purple Tigers now stand at 2-0.

Clayton Douglass added a 7-6, 6-3 win at No. 2 doubles, while the No. 1 doubles tandem of Will DeVaul and Joel Austin picked up a 6-2, 6-3 victory for Northwestern.

“Kyle was the last guy on the court, so we were waiting him tied 2-2,” Northwestern coach Matt Woods said. “The whole team rallied around him. He told me earlier in the day that he was pretty tired, but he pulled out something extra there late in the match. This was important for our young guys. Both Douglass boys are freshmen, so for both of them to get big varsity wins is big for our program going forward. They tested us mentally [Tuesday] night, but I thought the way we pulled through was outstanding.”
