Bryan Captures Title and Record
May 9, 2014, Defiance -- The Golden Bear boys tennis team had a big day as they played two matches Friday to determine the Northern Buckeye Tennis League Champion - a title they had not won since its inception in 2010.
Not only did Bryan come up big and pick up the league title, they tied a school record in the process as they raised their record to 15-3 tying the previous high mark of 15-3 set by the 1987 boys team.
Against Archbold, Bryan's singles players dominated with Derek Vincent, Zach Bauer, and Josh Stark all with wins. At doubles, Nathan Lamore and Scott Ewonus got a victory at second doubles to give Bryan the 4-1 win.
Against Wauseon, the Bears improved on their 3-2 win from earlier in the season. While Wauseon won at first singles, it was all Bryan down the rest of the lineup. Bryan's Zach Bauer and Josh Stark picked up victories at second and third singles respectively. And it was Drew Kaufman and Eliot Pitman winning at first doubles while Nathan Lamore and Scott Ewonus came up big again at second doubles for another 4-1 win on the day.
The tournament scoring left Bryan the victor with Nathan Lamore, Scott Ewonus, Zach Bauer, and Josh Stark all winning first place medals. Derek Vincent, Drew Kaufman, and Eliot Pitman received runner-up medals.
Bryan will play for the outright school record on Tuesday in a make-up match against Van Wert at Rec Park at 4:30 PM.
