Bucs Tennis Season Underway

Caleb Primos

Boys’ Tennis

In the first week of the 2011 tennis season, the Milford High varsity boys started off the season with a win in dominant fashion, as they took four out of five matches versus Polytech.

Senior Mike Dunn believes that the team has made a huge improvement from last year, mainly due to consistent play and a better attitude from everyone on the team. Dunn and his doubles partner, senior Jeremy Schuler, had a dominant two-set win in their second doubles match.

“We made some mistakes that need to be fixed, but overall we had a good match,” said Dunn. “It’s a big improvement from last year.”

At second singles, junior Zeph Geyer also won in two sets, while Caleb Primos won in two sets on a tie-breaker in third singles, and the first doubles team of senior Trent Summers and junior Kirk Anderson also won in two sets. Delaware high school matches are played on a best of three set format.

Senior co-captain Kane Rothermel lost his first singles match in a close battle.

Despite the season-opening win versus Polytech, the Milford boys dropped all five matches on Friday against Caesar Rodney at home.  Even though Milford did not beat CR, Milford High head coach Tim Parks remains optimistic about the rest of the season and anticipates seeing the hard work put in, pay off. Dunn agrees, saying that the Bucs need to “minimize mistakes and maximize opportunities to ensure that they have a winning season.”

Girls’ Tennis

The Milford girls’ team lost both of its matches during the opening week to Polytech, 4-1, and CR, 5-0. In the Polytech match, Junior Caitlyn Webb recorded the lone win, 6-3, 6-3.       

Looking ahead, the Bucs will face three teams this week: Cape Henlopen on Monday, Smyrna on Tuesday, and Dover on Friday. The boys play at home on Monday and Friday and away on Tuesday. The girls play away on Monday and Friday and home on Tuesday.
