Park Tudor downs Brownsburg

All of the confidence and best efforts of the Brownsburg boys’ tennis squad couldn’t overcome one of the state’s top teams.

Park Tudor, the No.2-ranked team in the state, defeated Brownsburg 5–0 in the boy’s tennis regional Wednesday night, ending the season for the young Bulldogs squad.

Brownsburg’s No. 1 singles player Sam Gentry fell to the Panthers Daniel Rayl (6–3, 6–2) and at No. 2 singles, the Bulldogs’ Nick Wilde lost to Scott Thygesen (6–2, 6–3). In No. 3 singles action, John Class fell to Pete Dakich (6–1, 6–3). The No. 1 doubles team of Michael Hartnagel and Nathan Mehringer lost to Graham Reinbold and Jack McCarter (7–5, 6–2), and the No. 2 doubles duo of Michael Clemens and Todd Clark fell to Levi Siegel and Alex Bertolini (6–4, 6–2).

“We knew they are very rich in talent and tried to approach this match as any other, but emphasize the importance of interrupting their rhythm and I think we did a good job of that,” Brownsburg coach Karen Starkey said. “I think the number of points we played and the length of the matches themselves, showed that we were hungry and how hard this team has worked this year.”

Starkey was pleased with her team’s play and their refusal to give up in the face of such a gifted Panthers’ squad.

“They did a great job, hats off to a very talented squad, but I was really pleased with the effort our guys had on the court,” she said. “I don’t think any of the matches were less than 90 minutes and several points came down to who was able to get that last shot over the net.

“We might be disappointed, but we are not devastated.”

Brownsburg may have been on the losing end this regional, but the back-to back sectional champions only lose one team member to graduation. 

“We are a young team and have some time to grow and get stronger for next year,” Starkey said. “We only lose one senior, so we need to build on what we have right now and push it up a notch. Raise the bar, that’s our goal.”
