Lebanon downs Western Boone 5-0

Lebanon — The Lebanon Tigers tennis team continued its dominance against the Sagamore Conference Thursday afternoon.

Lebanon topped Boone County rival Western Boone 5-0. The Tigers improved to 6-1, while the Stars fell to 5-3.

“It is always good to get a win, especially when it is in conference,” Lebanon head coach Brad Mustin said. “We are working off of that Zionsville loss a little bit and the players are still learning, so it is good to come out and get a win today.”

For Western Boone, it was the first conference loss of the season after starting off 2-0.

“We had a couple of guys who didn’t quite wake up at the right time,” Western Boone head coach Dustin Cunningham said. “We can take some positives and build off that. We get a few days off over the weekend and will get ready for another conference match Tuesday.”

Lebanon went up 1-0 when Josh Wright topped Jacob DeBard 6-2, 6-2. The match at No. 2 doubles quickly followed, with Nick Wright and Grayson Heinbaugh defeated Jason Smith and Quintin Martin 6-1, 6-2.

“That is what we want from all our players,” Mustin said of the quick wins. “We want them to go out and work hard, work on some things effort and stroke wise, but it is always good to see that killer instinct.”

At No. 3 singles, Raghuram Srinivasan improved to 5-2 on the season and handed Tyler Squibb his first loss of the year, 6-4, 6-1.

“That is great for Raghuram because he is a good counter-puncher,” Mustin said. “He loves to see the pace because that is less work he has to do. He likes to see those kinds of matches and came out and played very well today.”

Sam Godby topped David James 6-1, 7-5 at No. 2 singles.

The Western Boone No. 1 singles team of Ryan Nicley and Zach Childers won the first set 7-6, but Lebanon’s Cameron Hudson and Malachi Vann won the final two sets 6-0 and 6-4.
