Bulldogs earn third tennis title

Brownsburg entered the boys’ tennis season as a two-time defending sectional champion and the senior-laden squad’s focus and determination for a third title never wavered.

That perseverance paid off against conference and county rival Avon. The Bulldogs wrapped up their third consecutive sectional championship with a 4-1 victory Saturday.

“The accomplishment falls on all of our seniors who had a part in all three of our titles,” Brownsburg coach Karen Starkey said. “It says a lot about their willingness year after year to put in the same level and not wanting to let go and finish what they started off as sophomores. That says a lot about their leadership and work ethic.”

However, not everything went as planned for Brownsburg.

Mother Nature caused a late start in the morning and as the match had begun with all games in the first set, the skies opened up once again, sending the coaches and administrators to decide on a solution.

Both squads agreed upon playing at Five Seasons on the north side of Indianapolis within two hours of the delay.

“We discussed that they needed to stay in the zone they were at when we left to maintain their momentum,” Starkey said.

Brownsburg led in every match, except No. 3 singles, before the delay and remained in control for the rest of the match.

“Brownsburg, by far, played the best match I’d seen them play,” Avon coach Robert Mize said. “I thought we played good tennis, but they just played better.”

Brownsburg’s No. 2 doubles team of Michael Clemens and Todd Clark put Brownsburg up 1-0 with their 6-1, 6-1 win over Avon’s Mark Bode and Zach Van Duyn.

Jon Class downed Avon’s Nathan Kesling at No. 2 singles 6-0, 6-0 shortly after the doubles’ victory.

Nick Wilde and Nathan Mehringer secured the sectional title, downing Avon’s Nate Toney and Tyler Habig 6-0, 6-0 to win at No. 1 doubles.
