Today the Waukesha North Boys Varsity Tennis team made more school history by becoming the first Boys Tennis team to finish as team Sectional Runner-Ups. Sadly, the “team” aspect of the season is done since only the Sectional Champions (Kettle Moraine) will advance to the Team State Tournament.
Despite not winning the Sectional Championship as a team, North did have some great results:
#1 Doubles team, Ben Bue and Matt Ewert, advanced to the individual state tournament by defeating Westosha Central. They lost to Kettle Moraine in the Semi-finals before defeating Union Grove for 3rd Place.
#2 Doubles team, Jacob Hoeg and Ben Schwartz, advanced to the individual state tournament and also claimed a Sectional Championship by defeating Westosha Central and Kenosha Indian Trail.
#3 Doubles team, Brennan Demark and Jordan Nowell, finished their season as Sectional Champions beating Kenosha Indian Trail and Westosha Central. (#3 Doubles teams don’t qualify for state tournament.)
#3 Singles player, James Winters ended his tennis career with a Sectional Runner-up title, falling in three sets to Kettle Moraine.
#4 Singles player, Jack Snopek also end his tennis career with a Sectional Runner-up title, also losing to Kettle Moraine
The season is done for all but four members of the Varsity Boys Tennis team. The team had a great season–setting school tennis records and making history. And while at it, making an entire North community VERY PROUD!!!!
