The Duncan Banner
Once again faced with some of Oklahoma’s top competition at the Guthrie tournament Monday, the boys tennis team continued to rise to the occasion.
Playing in the sixteen team tournament, the Demons placed in every event, including a team-best fifth place finish in No.1 doubles.
Sam Moffat made his presence felt in No. 1 singles play, winning two of his first three matches before falling just short in the fifth place game to finish sixth.
Moffat opened with a 6-1, 6-0 win against Oklahoma Bible Academy, dropped his second match 6-3, 6-0 to his opponent from Oklahoma Christian 6-3, 6-0 and recovered to defeat Deer Creek 5-7, 6-1, 10-8. Moffat couldn’t prevail in his last match, falling 6-1, 6-0 to Ada in the fifth place game.
Allan Hruby continued Duncan’s strong play in singles play, taking seventh place in the No.2.
Hruby started play with a 6-0, 6-1 win against Perry and fell to Ada 7-6, 6-0, 10-6 before dropping his third match to Piedmont 6-3, 6-4, 10-4.
Hruby delivered when it counted most, defeating Deer Creek in his final match to take seventh.
In No.1 doubles play, Ryan Robinson and Andre Vuong came through with Duncan’s best performance, taking fifth. The pair took two of its first three matches, then beat out Piedmont 6-0, 6-4 to take fifth.
Sam Allen and Brant Davis also placed in No.2 doubles, winning two of three matches before losing their fifth place game 7-6, 6-1, 10-6.
Duncan tennis will be right back at it tomorrow, when the Lady Demons compete in the girls tennis Guthrie tournament.
