Tigers Rip Carthage to Spoil Opening Night (Photos & Results)

Republic’s spoiled the opening of Carthage’s new eight-court tennis complex on its high school campus, romping to a 9-0 victory to stay undefeated at 8-0. Republic is 3-0 in Central Ozark Conference play and has beaten both of the future district opponents it has played.

(See photos below.)

The only close call of the night came in the #1 doubles match, where Isaac Jordan and Kile Thornhill struggled to eke out a 9-7 victory over Adam Theis and Eric Ortega. Jordan and Thornhill trailed 7-6 before winning three games in a row to close out the win. Republic still hasn’t lost a doubles match all year.

It’s the sixth consecutive win for Republic over Carthage.

The JV squad improved to 4-1 this season with a 19-5 win.

The Tigers play next Monday at home against Carl Junction (varsity only).
