Southwestern's tennis team closed out the 2013 regular season with a 3-2 win over Christian Academy at home on Monday.
The Rebels swept all three singles matches and got wins by seniors Greggory Cline and Camden Bentley to secure the win.
"We said goodbye to five seniors and they were Greggory Cline, Tyler Jones, Brynen Chitwood, Camden Bentley and Michael Perry," Southwestern coach Kevin Wood said. "These guys have been with me since I started coaching here at Southwestern four years ago and it's going to be hard watching them close out their tennis careers. I've watched these guys grow into fine young men and I'm honored to have been a part of their lives."
Cline scored a 7-5, 6-2 win over Justin Brown at No. 1 singles while Bentley defeated Jack Drake 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 10-5 at No. 2 singles. Jarod Perry closed out the singles sweep with a 7-5, 6-2 at No. 3.
In doubles, Michael Perry and Brynen Chitwood lost to Seth Delbridge and Bradley Gay 6-2, 6-3 at No. 1, and Christian Hayes and Bryce Scroggins fell 6-2, 6-4 to Justin Hurst and Dillon Barton at No. 2.
Southwestern's next match will be in the IHSAA Sectional at Jennings County starting on Thursday. The draw was held on Monday but has not yet been released for that sectional.
