Catholic Central Tennis Dominates Final Regular Season Match

Owen Kummer '22
On September 29, CC tennis played their final dual match of the 2021 season against Livonia Stevenson. The Shamrocks came to play, finishing the day with a commanding end score of 7-1, adding another notch to the belt of Shamrock Tennis. The only match that was forfeit by the team was a 0-6, 0-6 loss at #1 Singles. Though Ned Curley ‘23 lost his battle, Nikola Milosevich ‘22 secured a major win at #2 Singles, just beating his opponent 7-6 in the first set and then crushing the second set 6-1. Justin Tran ‘24 played a close match at #3 Singles but trumped his opponent 6-4, 6-4 using his signature consistency and deadly accuracy. Luke Martin ‘23 barely batted an eye at his competition, winning the #4 Singles match in an effortless 6-1, 6-0.

The dynamic duo of Nick Maynard ‘22 and Alec Maynard ‘23 were off the courts in almost the blink of an eye, successfully netting a #1 Doubles win for the team with a 6-1, 6-1. Ryan Luke ‘22 and Owen Kendall ‘23 followed in hot pursuit, earning their win at #2 Doubles with a similar score of 6-1, 6-2. Cole Nogawa ‘22 and Luke Butler 22’ had the closest doubles match of the evening at #3 Doubles, but you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who thinks 6-3, 6-3 is anything besides yet another testament to the skill of CC’s tennis team. Schuyler Boerema ‘23 and Johnathon Diaz ‘23 wrapped it up with a match score of 6-2, 6-0, cementing their 5th and final win of this year’s regular season.

With the CHSL Championship and Regional Playoffs inbound, the team eagerly awaits their opportunity to prove just how hard they’ve worked and how bad they want it. Though there definitely won’t be a rowdy student section at the tennis courts, another run at the Tennis State Championship is imminent, and CC tennis invites anybody interested to come out to Novi High School on October 8 to watch the Shamrocks serve up their opponents at regionals.
