9/8/2017 4:02:00 PM Guerin takes tennis conference title
The Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles clinched the Circle City Conference title with a win over Heritage Christian Thursday night 5-0. The shutout victory did not come without some marathon matches. Michael Wade prevailed over Jack Booker in three sets at #1 singles and Michael Aikman endured a match just short of three hours at #3 singles over Joel Mounts.
"Heritage Christian always comes out ready to play. Mounts and Booker had a game plan and stuck to it for the duration of the match," said Guerin coach Joe Lustig. "I was very happy for Michael Aikman tonight. Mounts was getting to everything and forced Michael to avoid any frustrating unforced errors. Michael played a very smart third set. Wade found a way to win tonight. Cole Metzger used his strokes well tonight by moving his opponent and keeping him out of his rhythm by changing his pace throughout the match. Our doubles won by taking over the net."
