Berries split with Bearcats, Red Devils in NCC matches

Logansport’s boys tennis team had a comeback win over Muncie Central but didn’t have the same fate later against Richmond on Saturday at Huntington University.

The Richmond loss certainly hurts the Berries’ (2-1, 1-1 North Central Conference) chances of winning an NCC title.

Logansport No. 1 singles player Bryan Zehner suffered his first loss in NCC play in over a year when he was defeated by Richmond freshman Eric Hollingsworth 6-2, 6-2. Zehner had earlier outlasted Muncie freshman Khamasi Muhiga 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.

“For Zehner it wasn’t a bad day. He played two legitimate kids that are highly touted for their age,” Logan coach Mike Montgomery said. “They’ve both got freshmen that are very, very good.

“The coach’s son from Richmond is an outstanding player and I knew about him. He’s the real deal. Zehner had nothing in the tank for him after a three-set marathon against the Muncie kid.”

The Berries swept both doubles spots against the Bearcats to get the win. Dustin Clements and Kaleb Overway won 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 at No. 1, and Zach Overway and Matthew Jennings won 6-4, 6-4 at No. 2.

Nathaniel King was defeated 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 singles and Lucas Eastburn was defeated 6-1, 6-3 at No. 3.

“I knew Muncie would be a lot better than they were last year,” Montgomery said. “Muncie returned the bulk of their team and got to move their 1 and 2 singles to 2 and 3.”

Jennings and Jerod Cole got the Berries’ lone point against the Red Devils, winning 6-3, 6-4 at No. 2 doubles.

King lost 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 at No. 2 singles, Eastburn lost 6-1, 6-2 at No. 3 singles and Clements and Kaleb Overway lost 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 at No. 1 doubles.

“To be honest, we were lucky to go 1-1,” Montgomery said. “We were down 2-1 to Muncie and both Clements and Overway and Zehner rallied back to win in three sets to get that done. We were in the same position against Richmond. Clements and Overway got it to a third and Nathaniel got it to a third. We needed both against them but didn’t get either one.”
