Titans knock off Knights in boys tennis

By JIM JEFFRIES

LEWISVILLE — The Tri High School boys tennis team played an important Tri-Eastern Conference match Tuesday evening against the visiting Northeastern Knights. The Titans won the match 4-1 to improve to 5-2 in the TEC and 5-4 for the season.

Tri won both flights of doubles pretty easily. At  No. 1 doubles, Jimmy Jeffries and Dillon Stevens got off to a slow start early and were tied 2-2 in the first set. They got it together and rattled off 10 straight games to win 6-2, 6-0 over Cohen Railsback and Nick Gaddis. Jarod Stevens and Isaiah Steele put away Andy Stephens and Justin Bane 6-0, 6-3 at No. 2 doubles.

In singles action, the Titans’ Kyle Falck defeated Nate Irwin 6-3, 6-1 at No. 1 singles. Northeastern got its only point at No. 3 singles as Zack Jaykoski defeated Tri’s Dylan Mofield 6-1, 6-0.

The most competitive match of the night came at No. 2 singles. Tri’s Clayton Becker had a long battle with Elijah Kenworthy and pulled out a 6-4, 7-5 victory.

Tri played at Centerville Wednesday night. The Titans travel to Randolph Southern on Thursday followed by the Henry County Tournament Saturday at Blue River.
