The Centerville Big Reds suffered two conference loses against Albia and Clarke. Clarke defeated the Big Reds 8-1 on Tuesday, April 12 and Albia took a 7-2 victory Tuesday, April 17.
David Sheets picked up Centerville’s lone win in singles 8-6 against Clarke.
Sheets and the doubles pair of Mikey Runyan and Devon Glosser picked up Centerville’s wins against Albia.
“Against Clarke, we just weren’t ready to compete that day for some reason,” Big Reds tennis coach Rich Parker said. “It seemed like we were going through the motions so to speak. David Sheets got a nice win in singles and continues to improve daily at the two spot. He also had a tough win over a good Albia opponent on Tuesday that was a long tough match. Hopefully we all continue to get better at thinking our way around the tennis court and can get some team victories here before long.”
The Big Reds will be in action again Thursday, April 26 at home against Chariton.
