No. 15 Columbus North sweeps Lawrence Central in boys tennis
August 31, 2012Columbus North High School
INDIANAPOLIS -- Freshman Kevin Luo dropped just one game in winning his first varsity match Thursday (Aug. 30), helping the No. 15 Columbus North boys tennis team to a 5-0 victory at Lawrence Central.
Luo knocked off the Bears' Daniel Nelson 6-0, 6-1 at No. 3 singles, helping the Bull Dogs improve to 4-1 overall and 2-1 in Conference Indiana.
Sophomore Anthony Sanders and junior Krishan Narsinghani swept the other singles spots, while junior Luke Red and senior Ernest Xi plus junior Kamal Maharjan and sophomore Mitchell Miller claimed the two doubles points.
Sanders defeated LC's Jacob Pluta 6-4, 6-2 at No. 1 singles, while Narsinghani beat the Bears' Toby Marvel 6-1, 6-2 and No. 2 singles. Red and Xi topped LC's Alex Larsh and Zach Yurack 6-0, 6-2 at No. 1 doubles. Maharjan and Miller got past the Bears' Sam Wilson and Brett Schwomeyer 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 doubles.
"This was a nice follow-up win over an emotional match (Wednesday against Columbus East)," Columbus North coach Kendal Hammel said. "We switched our lineup around again as we still are toying with player positions. We put Kevin Luo in at 3 singles for his first varsity match, and he played very well."
The Bull Dogs also won five of six JV matches to improve to 5-0 at that level.
Columbus North returns to action at 9 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 1) when it visits Center Grove. The Bull Dogs follow by hosting Pike at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 4) in another CI encounter.
