Quakers take two from No. 4 Braves

PLAINFIELD – The Planfield boys’ tennis team faced a stern test Thursday as fourth-ranked Terre Haute South paid a visit.

The Quakers scored a win in both doubles and singles play but fell to the Braves, 3-2.

“I think we’re making a lot of strides up and down the lineup,” Plainfield coach Tony Epkey said. “The guys competed well, which is what we expect each and every day, and they’re learning.”

Plainfield’s No. 1 doubles team of Jack Cavanaugh and Michael Bohney beat Terre Haute’s Trace Harruff and Reed Crawford 6-2, 6-2, in a match that saw the Quakers play with high intensity and focus.

“We put those guys together because we think they can do some damage,” Epkey said. “We’re looking forward to seeing them improve and learn how to gel together. They still haven’t played that many matches together, but they are becoming more comfortable as they go.”

In a marathon match that stretched nearly three hours, Plainfield’s Austin Vuurman pulled out a 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 victory over Scott Keller in No. 3 singles.

While Plainfield No. 1 singles player Evan Rink lost to Nathan Bogle 6-0, 6-1, and No. 2 Jacob Hopper fell to Krishan Kumar 6-0, 6-0, the matches saw many competitive points not indicated in the final tally.

The doubles tandem of Nathan Mormino and Tyler West lost to Mathew Gonzolas and Luke Yeagley 6-4, 6-3, but also challenged throughout.

“They all played hard, and right now it’s about the guys learning how to do that, how to battle each and every point and each and every match,” Epkey said.

Plainfield remains without its projected No. 1 singles player in Brock Naaman, whose lower back ailment has kept him sidelined so far this season.

“We’re anxious to get Brock back and looking forward to seeing where he falls in the lineup,” Epkey said. “Certainly he will strengthen this team, wherever he ends up.”
