Madison boys tennis cruised to a 5-0 win at home on Monday, defeating Oldenburg Academy in straight sets.
The Cubs dropped just 14 games total over the 10 sets against the Twisters.
"While we posted this win, the challenge was to play our game every point no matter how the Twisters played," Madison coach Desna Ratcliff said. "The team did well in doing that."
Rsults were: Singles - No. 1 Kyle Sauley (M) d. Josh Hollingsworth (OA) 6-1, 6-0; No. 2 Sam McIlvain (M) d. Luke Hammoor (OA) 6-0, 6-2; No. 3 Cole Callahan (M) d. Calvin Shenk (OA) 6-2, 6-3; Doubles - No. 1 Clark Vaughn, Noah Stookey (M) d. Nick Bischoff, Sam Gast (OA) 6-0, 6-1; No. 2 Luke Lipps, Ceaton Bowman (M) d. Nathan Hubert, Clay Hunger (OA) 6-2, 6-3.
Madison (6-3) visits New Albany today for what promises to be a much tougher Hoosier Hills Conference match.
"We need to make a 180 turn for some stiff competition at New Albany," said Ratcliff. "There is still room for improvement and we will be pushing hard in preparation for the final weeks of the season."
