The boys tennis team has been making progress this season. On April 5th, the boys played Fenton and came out strong with a four to three victory. Seniors Bradley Wilson and Jake Dluhy played strong at first doubles along with junior Jack Kemper and senior Luke Jebb at second. Sophomores Ryan Gradishire and Jimmy Rock held strong at third doubles and senior Nate Hanley and junior Jeremy Rolewicz held up at fourth doubles.

On April 9th, the boys had a tough time at the Leyden Quad finishing in fourth place. They came back with another four to three victory against Addison Trail and Elmwood Park.

Kemper said, “The season has been the same if not better than last year. We have a really strong team and I think the rest of the season will only get better.”

The Bulldogs defeated Shepard with a four to one victory, but fell short playing conference competitor Timothy Christian. Kemper said, “Timothy Christian and Glenbard South are going to be tough to beat.”

Junior Aron Perfect said, “The team has bonded really well, which makes practice very fun. It’s been a good season and we’re improving every day.”

The team will play eight more matches against conference and non-conference teams. On Wednesday May 11, the seeding will be chosen for the sectional matches. Those matches will be held on May 20th.
