TIPP CITY — The Tippecanoe tennis team won the battle of MVL unbeatens Tuesday, topping Troy 5-0.
“We competed, but Tipp was the better team today,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “Wyatt Hench played a great match at third singles against Chris Nichols and came up a couple points short. Genki (Masunaga) is getting his timing back and starting to move better.
“The doubles teams and Noah (George) need to be more consistent in their shot making. Tipp has a strong, deep team and deserved the win.”
In singles, Kessler Hackenberger defeated George 6-2, 6-0; Luke Blake defeated Masunaga 6-3, 6-2 and Nichols defeated Wench 6-2, 6-7 (5), 1-0 (8).
In doubles, Aaron and Cameron Davis defeated Matt Bess and Henry Johnston 6-2, 6-3 and Sean Nichols and Nathan Gagnon defeated Aiden Miller and Eli Monnin 6-3, 6-1.
