Hoosier Crossroads tennis conference tourney results

The Hamilton Southeastern Royals finished tied for 3rd at the HCC tourney on Saturday, with Mudsock rival Fishers, both finishing with a score of 27. Avon took home the championship and Brownsburg followed in second.

"We finished with 27 points (tied with Fishers) and behind Avon (37 points) and Brownsburg (31 points). Overall, we went 5-7 on the day, and I thought we played well overall and showed some good fight, but it was disappointing that we didn't win at any positions, said HSE coach Kirk Webber. "We did have two singles players who out-performed their seed."

At #2 singles, HSE's Elias Yarling had a great first match and beat Avon 7-5, 6-1. He ended up finishing in 4th place. At #3 singles, Otto Lutz also had a very good first match as he defeated Zionsville. After losing in the 2nd round, he finished the day with a gritty win over Brownsburg, coming back from down 4-5 in the 2nd to win the set 7-5 and close out the match. Lutz finished in 3rd place at #3 singles. At #1 singles, McGuire Wolfe played a very good first match, but lost to a tough Westfield player. He had a tough second match and lost to Noblesville and finished in 7th place.

Both of the HSE doubles teams had great second round matches (after they both had first round byes) to get into the finals, but came up short in the finals against Avon. The #2 doubles team of Matthew Parker and Matt Meyer got a win over Zionsville in the second round that avenged a loss to them earlier in the season. In the finals against Avon, they dropped the first set and were down 2-5 in the second, but they battled back to win 5 games in a row and win the second set to force a 3rd set tiebreaker. They came up short in the breaker, losing 10-5.

"I was really proud of how they kept fighting in the second set when things looked grim," said Webber. At #1 doubles, Andrew Myers and Mark Slaninka came out and played extremely well against a solid Westfield doubles team.

The Royals ended up losing 6-2, 6-4 in the finals against Avon.

HSE's Andrew Myers and Mark Slaninka made the all-conference team for getting 2nd place at #1 doubles.

The Shamrocks boys tennis team placed 5th this weekend with 25 points. Freshman Quentin Markle finished third place at #2 singles. Senior Parker Kalis finished 3rd place and earned All-Conference for the 4th straight year.

Noblesville also competed, and the Millers went home with a last place finish with a team score of 11 points.
