The Sterling College Men’s Tennis team finished out it’s season with a loss to Tabor College April 24.
This leaves the men with an overall record of 3-9 and a record of 2-6 in conference play.
This month April proved to be especially challenging as the Warriors lost to McPherson, Ottawa, Southwestern, Bethel, and Tabor College.
However, head coach Lonnie Issac is still pleased with the effort the athletes have put in this season.
“Despite losing 0-7 to Bethel, our men really competed well and the match was much tighter then the score would indicate,” Issac said.” We lost the doubles point but played well falling in tight sets (4-6) at both number one and number three doubles. In singles Kenan lost in a three setter at number five and Kyler played well and came very close to taking his match to three sets as well.”
Senior Kyler Comley emphasized what the team was mentally ready to compete in every meet.
“Personally, you got to be on your game ad I thought we did a pretty good job just going out there and competing as hard as we could, trying to pull an upset and overcoming those obstacles.”
Sophomore, Kamaran Jones gives props to the other KCAC teams.
“I think that so far that this season we have been playing well. The teams that have played are really good but it has challenged us to work hard.”
