PIQUA — The Lehman Catholic boys tennis team got a road win to open the season.

“Hats off to Wyatt Heinz and the Piqua team,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “Wayat really has their numbers up and has done good things with the program. They are much improved and will win their share of matches this season. I am proud of how our guys handled the cold temperatures.

“Sammy (Gilardi) had a nice win over a very good freshman and Joe (Pannapara) and Brandon (Jones) were very steady. Our first doubles played very well, closing out a tight first set and cruised in the second set.”
