The Blazers won both the number one and two doubles competition and captured first place honors in the Paola Round Robin tournament last week.
Micah VanVleet and Dylan Meeks posted a perfect 3-0 record in number one doubles competition and the Blazers number two team of Jeff Swartz and Cameron Miller also took first place with a 3-0 mark.
In number one singles competition, Brad Allen had a 1-3 record but his one victory proved to be the margin of victory for the Blazers. Jacob Boring also had a 1-3 mark in number two singles.
“Brad’s win actually gave us just enough points to win the team title,” said Coach Jon Collum. It was a timely win over his Spring Hill opponent.”
In a home quadrangular April 3, the Blazers got a number one singles victory from Brad Allen. The number one doubles of Van Vleet and Meeks went 0-3 on the day but pushed Blue Valley Northwest to the brink before bowing 8-5. The duo dropped a hard fought 8-7, 7-3 tiebreaker to Olathe South.
In number two doubles, Swartz and Cameron Miller lost to Blue Valley Northwest, 8-6 and Olathe South, 8-7,7-5.
“The kids are showing a lot of improvement and we should be in good shape for regionals,” said Collum. I am real encouraged with our team progress.”
Next action comes April 9-11 at the Bonner Springs Invitational.
