Berries knock off Mavs

Cass wins at Northwestern; Pioneer golf tops Mac

Logansport’s boys tennis team cruised to a 4-1 win over visiting McCutcheon Wednesday.

Bryan Zehner and Cory Rozzi took little time in dispatching their opponents at No. 1 and 2 singles, winning 6-0, 6-0 and 6-1, 6-0.

The Berries (11-2) also swept the doubles spots, as Dustin Clements and Kaleb Overway won 6-2, 6-2 at No. 1 and Nathaniel King and Lucas Eastburn won 6-3, 6-3 at No. 2.

“They’re down,” Logan coach Mike Montgomery said of the Mavericks. “I think they adjusted their lineup and gave away the top two spots. Zehner and Rozzi really didn’t have a challenge. ... I figured we were going to win at 1 and 2 singles and the doubles should win, and they did.”

Zehner is now 12-2 on the season at No. 1 singles. He lost his first two matches of the season at the Lafayette Jeff Invite this past weekend.

“He lost against a Harrison player in three sets and to a Culver Academy player,” Montgomery said. “He probably shouldn’t have let the one get away from Harrison. That steamrolled him right through the next match. He was disappointed that he would have been in the finals of the tournament. He saw that out the window and didn’t play well the last match of the day.”

Rozzi finished runner-up at Jeff with the only loss coming against a player from No. 5-ranked Munster. He is now 11-3.

The Berries are taking a 3-0 North Central Conference mark into today’s key league match at Kokomo. But the Berries are short-handed as they have two starters that have been out of the lineup due to a violation of the school’s athletic code but will be back Saturday.

“Kokomo and Marion are teams we have not been able to solve. They’ve been the top two teams in the NCC and we’ve been not that far from them,” Montgomery said. “Everything will have to go right for us [today]. Zehner and Rozzi have to play extremely well to win and one of the two doubles teams will have to come through. Both can do it. The invite helped at Lafayette seeing some really good teams like Munster, which is top ranked in that region, and Culver Academy is a lot better this year. It’s good to play that caliber of teams.”
