Antigo tennis tournament in Wausau

0

FROM COACH DAVE ZALEWSKI

The Antigo Boys tennis team made the short trip to Wausau East for a multi-school tournament. Wausau West, Wausau East, Green Bay Preble and West Bend West also participated. Antigo was supposed to play three matches but due to the heat they were only able to play two. “We faced two teams that we have rarely faced, Green Bay Preble and West Bend West. Against Preble we won 5-2 but against West Bend we couldn’t cross the finish line and lost 3-4.

Garrett Husnick and Sam Bretl easily won their two games at one and two respectively. Husnick improved to 12-1 and Bretl to 14-2.

The number one pair of Nolan Bunnell and Calvin Jansen won both of their matches but were pushed in both. Against West Bend they just couldn’t find their footing and lost 1-6. But the duo were convinced they could return. Refusing to cash in, they seized the second set by increasing their margin of error and playing more patiently. In the third set tiebreak, they immediately took matters into their own hands and secured a 10-4 victory.

The most enthralling game of the day for Antigo was the last one finished. With the team at 3-3, Antigo’s Cole Umland and West Bend’s Landon Sickler battled it out in the hot afternoon sun. All eyes were on the two as they scrambled and worked to gain the advantage over their opponent. The tight first set went to West Bend 7-5. With no one else on the courts, Umland and Sickler went head-to-head, both having to swallow water during crossovers. The rallies were long and tiring and eventually the two tied at 6-6, sending them into a tie, which West Bend eliminated, giving their team a 4-3 victory.

Antigo plays its last conference meeting at home on Monday, against Medford, at 4:30 p.m. Antigo will host the conference tournament on Thursday, starting at 9 a.m.
