(LOOGOOTEE) – Loogootee’s wild men overpowered Bedford North Lawrence during boys high school tennis action on Tuesday afternoon.
Jordan and Jalen Wildman posted victories at the top of the singles lineup as the Lions rolled to a 5-0 win over the Stars. Loogootee dropped only five games on the three singles courts.
Jordan Wildman topped Adam Tlustek 6-2, 6-1 at No.1 singles while Jalen disposed of Cameron Gratzer 6-0, 6-0 at No.2. Bryant Eckerle finished the sweep with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Steven Graham, who made his debut at No.3 singles after a shift from doubles.
BNL’s most competitive match came at No.2 doubles, where the new combination of Graham Turner and Konley Woodward fell to Jayden Leatherman and Nathan Seals 6-2, 7-5.
“We decided to shuffle one spot,” BNL coach Donnie Thomas said. “Konley is really aggressive, and that helped. So I was proud of them.
“I thought Adam played more relaxed than anyone else, and I wish everyone could play that way. But Loogootee is a really good team, one of the top teams in the district.”
The Lions also claimed No.1 doubles as Luke Nonte and Sebastian Toy toppled Cade Provo and Wyatt Scherschel 6-2, 6-1.
BNL (3-4) will host Seymour on Thursday.
