PREP BOYS TENNIS: Goshen shut out

Several marathon matches in NLC meet Tuesday

GOSHEN — There are times in sports where you just can’t look at the final score and determine how well a team played.

That is the lesson Goshen High School boys tennis coach Daniel Love wants his team to take away from a 5-0 NLC loss to the Warsaw Tigers Tuesday at the Goshen Middle School courts.

The Redskins entered the match with a 9-1 record.

“I’m not sure you can ever be truly satisfied with a loss,” the coach said. “We did put together some good matches after getting off to slow starts on some of the courts. We found ways to get our teeth into the matches.”

Warsaw was a 4-1 winner over Goshen last season.

“The only point we won was at No. 1 doubles (Sylas Buller and Sam Stegelmann) and we graduated them,” Love said. “Warsaw had a very different lineup tonight.”

The lesson about not looking just at the final had already registered with Goshen senior Austin Stutzman.

“There are times when you can play your best tennis and still get beat,” Goshen’s No. 2 singles player said. “The 5-0 score is deceiving as to how well we played. There were close sets. We made Warsaw feel our presence out there on the courts.”

Stutzman’s match was one of two that went three sets before he dropped a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 decision to Will Petro.

“There were a lot of long points and the match was close the whole time. It really could have gone either way,” Stutzman said.

Stutzman agrees with his coach that the Goshen team can take some positives away from this one.

“We can be encouraged because we knew coming in Warsaw would be the strongest team we had faced to this point of the season,” he said. “I think a lot of the guys are happy with the way they played. Like always there were some things we could have done better. My serves could have been better. I had some double faults in key situations.”

The other three-setter was at No. 2 double as Caleb Ray and Nikos Schlitt of Warsaw outlasted senior Derick Hostetler and freshman Logan Troyer 4-6, 7-6, 6-1 in a marathon that lasted nearly three hours.

“We played good tennis spots,” Love said. “But there were times when the peaks and the valleys were too far apart. You are always going to have highs and lows but we need to smooth them out a little.

“We got off to slow starts on some courts and you can’t really blame it on the three-day weekend because Warsaw had the same situation. We also had some matches were we did not finish great.”

The Goshen JV suffered its first loss of the season by a 10-5 count. Sophomore Corbin Harrison won a singles match and teamed with freshman Jacob Grewe for a double win to lead the Redskins.

Singles

No. 1 — Sam Rice (W) def. Hudson Kay 6-2, 6-4.
