From MSHS Boys Tennis Head Coach, Karl Thomsen:

  • “Well, I have to say, that was maybe the craziest weather I’ve seen tennis played in. At one point in the #2-singles match, I saw our player hit a shot that landed on the other side of the net and take a 90-degree angle into the adjacent court. I’m not sure if the players thought it was fun playing out there, but they did battle through the wild gusts of wind. Our #2 doubles team, Keaton Ansell and Andrew King, were super-efficient out on the court today. They made short work of balls that hung in the air near the net. The Camilli brothers, Toby and Seppi, were a model of consistency at #4 doubles and their hustle made them a treat to watch. I like the improvement we are seeing, which needs to continue as we head towards the tournaments.”
