Borden, Smith play in tennis showcase
GREENCASTLE — Maconaquah’s Cole Borden and Peru’s Ryan Smith played in the Indiana High School Tennis Coaches Association’s annual Boys Senior All-Star Match over the weekend at DePauw University.
Borden and Smith played for the winning Northeast squad. Smith posted a 3-0 record with one singles point and two doubles points. Borden was 2-1 with one doubles point and one singles point.
Seniors are nominated by coaches and selected by the coaches association for the event. Players are then divided among the Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest teams. The Northeast team had two players from Homestead, two from Carroll of Fort Wayne and one each from Mississinewa, Northridge, West Noble, Maconaquah and Peru.
Longtime Peru coach Mike Saine assisted Carroll coach Kyle Stoffel in coaching the Northeast squad, which has won the event 10 time since it debuted in 2008.
Borden recently announced his decision to play at Wabash College. Smith is considering his options.
