New-look Kings win

Cass edges Twin Lakes in possible sectional preview match

Cass’ new No. 1 singles player Brennen Garland had to battle Twin Lakes’ Spencer Andrews in order to give the Kings a 3-2 win in boys tennis action Wednesday.

Garland, who is playing at the No. 1 singles position for the first time this year, had to go three sets in winning 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.

“We’ve had some lineup changes through the last two days of challenge matches,” Cass coach Brian Thomas said. “Garland started out the season 4-0 at No. 2 singles. He earned the No. 1 spot in [Wednesday’s] match, and didn’t disappoint us with a thrilling, come-from-behind victory. After dropping the first set, he battled back to a third set, then came back from a 4-2 deficit to win the final set and give the team the win.”

The Kings’ No. 3 singles player, Brad Berlet, won in straight sets 6-3, 6-4, and the No. 1 doubles team of Nolan Lowe and Manny Prado also won in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

“I can’t say enough about sophomore Lowe and his team-first attitude,” Thomas added. “He ended last season at No. 1 singles, and started out decent this year. Lowe has gotten into a slump here lately, dropping down to the No. 4 spot. He took his challenge match loss on the chin, kept his chin up, and went and did the job his team needed him to do at the No. 1 doubles with senior Prado.

“Freshman Berlet earned a varsity singles position through challenge matches this week, and came through for his team with a win at No. 3 singles. Berlet strikes the ball well for a young player, and I look forward to seeing him continue to play solid for the rest of the season.”

Logansport 5, Carroll 0

The Berries only had one game scored against them in their nearly shutting out of the Cougars.

Logansport’s No. 1 singles player Bryan Zehner, No. 3 singles player Angelo Scagnoli, No. 1 doubles team of Kaleb Overway and Matt Jennings and the No. 2 doubles team of Jared Cole and Cass McClure each won in a shutout 6-0, 6-0. The Berries’ No. 2 singles player Nathaniel King was tops with a 6-1, 6-0 score.
