TELL CITY—Tell City won the top two singles matches and No. 2 doubles to beat Pike Central 3-2 in PAC boys tennis Thursday.
That was the Marksmen’s third win in three days and fifth in a row as they raised their record to 5-2 in the PAC and 6-3 overall.
“This was probably the best we played as a team all year,” said Tell City Coach Nick Weyer. “From top to bottom, I was extremely proud of our play tonight. Pike Central is a solid, well-coached team; therefore, this is a good win for us.
“It’s been a tiring, hot week, but the gentlemen worked hard and had positive outcomes.”
Jake Swihart and Zach Fisher won their singles matches in straight sets. Tyler Groves and Kevin Yeung also won their doubles match in straight sets.
All the Marksmen had positive results in a 5-0 win over South Spencer Wednesday.
They won four matches in straight sets and one by forfeit.
Jeff Yeung and Austin Paulin did have to go to a first-set tie-breaker in their No. 1 doubles victory.
“This was a great win, especially considering the hot conditions,” said Weyer. “Jake and Zach dominated their opponents by playing within themselves, playing their game.
“No. 2 doubles played excellent—their movement at the net was outstanding. Jeff and Austin did well getting the job done when it was needed.”
Tell City will host Boonville today at 4:30 p.m.
