HHS tennis completes season at regionals

The Hillsboro tennis team completed its season Friday with opening round losses at the Class 3-2-1A regional tournament in Hesston.

In singles, Josh Funk lost to Victor Cheng of Hutchin?son Trinity, 6-0, 6-0. Dylan Wiens lost to Lakeland Con?rad of Wichita Collegi?ate, 6-0, 6-0.

In doubles, Jacob Isaac and Brandon Wiebe lost to Williams and Holthus of Hesston, 6-0, 6-1.

Funk is the only senior on a young Trojan squad.

?Josh has had a great attitude and it has been positive to have him as part of the team,? coach Stuart Holmes said. ?All of the rest of the guys are freshmen, so if they work at improving their game in the off-season, they have the potential to be more competitive next year.?

CKL at Lindsborg?Hills?boro?s tennis team claimed a match win in both No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles at the Central Kan?sas League tournament May 4 at Lindsborg.

In No. 1 singles, Josh Funk defeated Jacob Schaefer of Pratt 9-5 in his third match after losing 9-5 to Jack Anderson of Larned and 9-1 to Cameron Davis of Hoisington in his first two matches.

Funk finished his day on the short end of 9-2 score in a rematch with Anderson.

?Josh played well all day even though it is only his second year of tennis,? coach Stuart Holmes said.

In No. 1 doubles, Jacob Isaac and Brandon Wiebe won their opening match 9-5 over Thompson and Meade of Larned. The Trojan duo then lost their next three matches by a 9-0 score in each: Dahlsten and Roth of Haven, Kauffman and Wells of Haven, and Knapp and Satterlee of Hoisington.

?Jacob and Brandon played an excellent first match, and even though they are freshmen they were able to come away with a win,? Holmes said. ?It showed their potential.?

In No. 2 singles, Dakota Klein lost 9-5 to Caden Nacht?i?gal of Haven, 9-3 to Steven Tran of Larned and 9-3 to David Loomis of Pratt.

?Dakota played especially well in his first match, losing a long match with a lot of close games,? Holmes said.
