Chase Elder and Garrett Carpenter picked up the win at #3 doubles in their first match together.

Tigers Grab First Tennis Win vs. New Covenant Academy

Republic swept its doubles matches and won four of six singles matches in earning its first win of the season, 7-2 over New Covenant Academy at home Monday. The match had been a late addition to the schedule, after Hillcrest dropped its match with Republic.

“Last minute, we contacted New Covenant, and they had a free spot today, so they agreed to play us,” said coach Dan Vales. “We’re really lucky they agreed to play, because we just want to get the guys on the court to get some experience. Five of our six guys are new to varsity, so they really need that court experience.”

Republic’s only two losses were in singles matches that went to tiebreakers. Drew McMillin lost his #1 singles match 8-9 (8-10), and Chase Elder lost his #4 singles match 8-9 (4-7).

Elder and Garrett Carpenter teamed up for the first time at #3 doubles, winning 8-3. It was Carpenter’s first career varsity win.

Braden Snyder picked up an 8-3 win in his singles match.

“I thought Braden had a nice win at #2 singles. He showed a lot of confidence,” said Vales.

Other singles winners were Deckard, Jacob Moody, and Scott Parker.
