The Milford High School boys’ tennis team continued to surpass its recent history, winning its seventh overall match for the season this past week. The boys shut out Sussex Central, 5-0, with straight-set wins from all the varsity players.
The Milford boys will travel to Sussex Central on Monday, April 18 to play the Golden Knights again and to try to secure a winning season. If the Bucs can win on Monday and again on Wednesday against Cape Henlopen, who they beat earlier in the season, they will head into spring break with a 9-3 record.
Junior Kirk Anderson says that he couldn’t be happier with how the team is playing.
“We have surpassed my expectations,” said Anderson. “I didn’t expect us to be this good.”
For the team’s seniors, the wins so far have been enjoyable. First singles player Kane Rothermel, second singles player Caleb Primos, first doubles player Trent Summers, second soubles player Jeremy Schuler and exhibition player Neil Shah round out the seniors.
The seniors also want to make sure that first-year head coach Timothy Parks has a memorable season. Anderson believes that Coach Parks stands as one of the biggest reasons that the Milford boys are doing so well this season, along with the fact that most of varsity has been on the team for the past three years.
Anderson remains confident that the Bucs will “finish the regular season with a winning record, do well at conferences, and do their best.”
“It is fun to win,” he added.
