Boys tennis close out successful season

SoVaNow.com / May 11, 2009
The HCHS boys’ tennis team closed out one of its best seasons in recent years over the weekend.

The Comets’ Chris Moore reached the Western Valley district semifinals, before losing to Matt Fink of PH. The doubles team of Chris Moore and Pat Barnes won its quarterfinals match before losing in the doubles semifinals to George Gianakos and Derrick Gale of Glass.

Here’s the progression for the Comets:

Thurs May 7 -Doubles 1st and quarters

Quarters:

Chris Moore/Pat Barnes (HC) d. Nathan Maultsby/Arjun Chahaun (GW) 6-1, 6-0 Ben Harris/Peyton Keesee (GW) d. Ralph Tuck/Ryan Dixon (HC) 6-0, 6-0

--

Saturday May 9

Singles Semifinals: Matt Fink (PH) d. Chris Moore (HC) 6-2, 6-0

--

Doubles Semifinals:

George Gianakos/Derrick Gale (ECG) d. Moore/Barnes (HC) 6-0, 6-1 HCHS boys’ tennis has something to be proud of, as Moore reached the WVD singles’ semifinals, while Moore and Barnes made the semifinals in doubles.

“Overall this is the most successful run that we have had in the tournament in awhile. We played well on Thursday, considering that we had to sub with Dixon due to Trent being ill, and our matches on Saturday were closer than the score indicated. It would have been nice to make it to the finals, but we gave it our all,” said coach David Riddle.

“It is going to be tough to replace Moore and Barnes next season, as well as the rest of the senior corps. Those two stand out due to the fact that they have been with the team for five years, and are also one and two in total wins since I have been coaching the team. They will all be missed next season. Coach (Brady) Taylor and I commend the entire team on a job well done and wish all the seniors the best of luck in the future,” said Riddle.
