Tiger tennis runs winning streak to 10 matches

Lebanon — Since losing to Zionsville Aug. 25, the Lebanon Tigers tennis team has been on quite the roll.

The Tigers topped Lafayette Jefferson 5-0 Thursday to win their 10th-straight match and improve to 14-1 on the season.

“The players have taken a lot of it upon themselves,” Lebanon head coach Brad Mustin said of the differences since the loss. “They realized they all had something to work on. Practices have been a lot more intense as they try to work on these things in these easier matches. They have stepped up.”

Lafayette Jefferson is one of the bigger schools on the Tigers’ schedule.

Although the Bronchos are down this year, Mustin said it is always good to beat one of the bigger schools.

“It is excellent, especially this late in the season when both team have fine-tuned themselves a little bit,” Mustin said. “It is good to see players playing at their best.”

Despite the win streak, Mustin believes his Tigers can play better tennis.

“We still have plenty of room for improvement, especially at the doubles positions,” Mustin said. “We have a whole week and a half before we have to worry about sectionals and we have a lot to work on during that time.”

Mustin said that the keys for the doubles teams will be getting comfortable with one another again after he switched the lineups around a couple of times after the Zionsville match.

They are back to where they were at the start of the season, with Malachi Vann and Grayson Heinbaugh playing at No. 1 doubles and Nick Wright and Cameron Hudson playing at No. 2 doubles.
