Decatur Central High School
Tuesday night was a great night for the Hawks, as we hosted Arsenal Tech for the first time. And after an hour and 15 minutes of play, the Hawks walked away with a 5-0 win, the team’s first clean sweep of the year, on both the varsity and JV sides.
At varsity, three of the five spots walked away without losing a game. Junior Will Sommers at three singles, junior Casey Martin and sophomore Austin Hardin at one doubles, and senior Jalen Hennessy and sophomore Miles Webb at two doubles all walked away with 6-0, 6-0 wins over their opponents. Close behind, at two singles, freshman Charlie Tran walked away with the teams fourth win for the Hawks, taking a quick 6-1, 6-0 win as well. The last match of the night, senior AJ Wright at one singles, took his first win of the season with a score of 6-2, 6-0.
For JV it was a similar night. Due to numbers, only one singles took on Arsenal. Junior Noah Fortner took a quick 8-0 win for the Hawks over his opponent. Lots of first serves made for a quick match.
Of the 68 total games played at all six positions, only three games were dropped by your Hawks! Overall, the Hawks are 2-10 for the season, the most wins secured in the last three seasons! We are on the way up. Our next match is our senior night, at home on Wednesday night against Covenant Christian. We will be having a brief ceremony at the beginning of lineup and also some festivities following the match. Come out and support your Hawks!
