Zionsville turns the corner in topping Lebanon

Zionsville — The Zionsville tennis team was in search of a win to help validate the progress they have been making this season.

It got that win Saturday with a 5-0 win against county and sectional rival Lebanon.

“This is huge,” Zionsville head coach Matt Moore said. “This could easily be the match that we look to at the end of the season and say this is what turned the envelope for us and allowed us to go on a winning streak and progress. Each match is a learning process. When you have a young team you expect that and that is what makes coaching more exciting.”

Lebanon came into the match with a perfect 4-0 record compared to just a 1-2 dual meet record for Zionsville.

Tigers’ head coach Brad Mustin said the difference was the types of opponents they have played so far.

“(The difference was) just a little bit of experience,” Mustin said. “We are bringing back a pretty mature team, but we haven’t seen much yet this season. We knew this was going to be a good match for us to really see where we are and what we need to work on.”

The match was closer than a 5-0 score would indicate.

Three of the matches went three sets, with Lebanon taking the first set in all of those.

Zionsville took a 1-0 lead when Josh Axelson topped Josh Wright 6-4, 6-3 at No. 1 singles.
