Busy week of competition for boys tennis team (4/22/10)

April 22, 2010

Seeking to end a two-match losing skein, the Champlain Valley Union High boys tennis team faced undefeated Essex High on Wednesday at Shelburne in a match rained out earlier in the season.

The match was scheduled for after press deadline.

Then the original schedule called for a visit from Rice Memorial High on Thursday. The Green Knights had nipped the Redhawks 4-3 in the season opener.

Essex had also posed a problem for the Hawks, having scored a 6-1 triumph in Essex last Thursday.

The Hornets were led by Williston’s David Ro, who scored 6-0, 6-0 wins over Tabor deGroot, CVU’s top player. Will Hall earned CVU’s lone point with a singles win.

Despite singles victories by Hall, Brice Guerriere and Liam Kelley, the Redhawks on Monday bowed 4-3 to South Burlington High (2-0).
