Concordia scored nine points in the tournament.
Abilene won the team title with 26 points. Marysville was second with 15 and Chapman was fourth with five.
“There was an abuncance of talented players and some great matches today. I was very pleased with the way everyone competed. We didn’t win as many matches as we were hoping for, but all the guys played well and should feel good about how they competed today. I really appreciate the effort and energy we showed today,” Concordia coach Steven Mitchell said.
Isaac Sprague finished second in number one singles for Concordia.
Joel Timme placed third in number one singles for the Panthers.
Romy Rohovit and Tristin Morgan, number one doubles, and Andrew Sheely and Logan Whitney, number two doubles, finished fourth.
Sprague dropped his first match to Gabe Johnson, Abilene, 8-0. He knocked off Shane Wiliams, Chapman, 8-2, and then got past Tony Hooyer, Marysville, 8-5 to finish 2-1.
“Isaac continues to play consistent tennis,” Mitchell said, “Isaac did a nice job of picking the right time to go for his shots and moved his opponents around well today. He was playing with a lot of confidence and handled the pressure moments well.”
Timme was beaten by Matthew Barlow, Abilene, the number one ranked player in the state, 8-2. He slipped past Chet Floyd, Chapman, 8-7 (7-5) and then fell 8-4 to Tanner Wright, Marysville.
“Joel competed very well today in a very strong singles field. After losing to the number one ranked player in the state, he came back and won a tough match in a tiebreaker against Floyd of Chapman. In his third match, Joel played Wright of Marysville even a 4-4 before losing the last four games. I really felt Joel hit hte ball very well today, and was very aggressive with his shots.”

“Romy and Tristin showed some real talent at times today, but were not able to put it together for a whole match. Their movement and energy on the court was excellent today, but they were just overpowered by some very strong doubles teams. It was nice to see them compete at a high level,” Mitchell said.
Sheely and Whitney lost 8-2 to Reggie Koop and Tyler Schiffner, Abilene, and 8-2 to Nathan Nelson and Kade Stroud, Chapman, and then defeated Cody Hill and Tommy McNish, Marysville, 8-2.
“Andrew and Logan won one of three matches, but lost the third-place tiebreaker to finish in fourth place today. After losing a couple of tough matches, they finished their day with a great win agianst the first-place team from Marysville. They really put everything together in that match, and played some of their best tennis
