The boys tennis team finished second out of eight teams at the Collegiate Invitational at Collegiate and Crestview March 30, losing to Collegiate by one point.
Senior Bobby Cuillo placed first in No. 2 singles, while senior Sam Lett and Daniel House placed second in No. 1 doubles. Sophomore Andrew Klimiuk placed third in No. 1 singles.
Cuillo, who won his final match 11-9 in a tiebreaker, attributed his success to mental positivity.
“I just told myself ‘keep hitting the same shot you’ve been hitting all day,” Cuillo said.
House and Lett lost their final match 8-7 to Collegiate’s doubles team that finished third at state last year. According to Lett, he and House perform best closer to the net, so they focused their strategy on that position.
“I thought we played well for it being the first time we played together, but there is definitely room for improvement,” Lett said.
Klimiuk lost his final match to Independent sophomore Wonjoon Cho, who placed third in singles at state last year.
“Playing No. 1 singles is always tough,” coach Chip Reed said. “Andrew is only a sophomore. He improved a lot during the offseason, so I expect him to continue to improve throughout the season.”
After the tournament, both Cuillo and Reed said the team has potential for success.
“I was very happy with how everyone played,” Reed said. “Hopefully we can continue this success at our City League duals and other tournaments this season.”
