MASON – Greenville’s four senior boys tennis players ended their high school careers in the district tournament on Thursday at the Linder Family ATP Tennis Center in Mason.
Greenville’s duo of Noah Haupt and Craig Manges, who won the Ohio High School Athletic Association Division I sectional championship in Troy, lost 6-1, 6-0 to Mason junior Shashank Singuri and sophomore Pranav Viswanathan in the opening round of the district tournament.
The Green Wave duo of Austin Grote and Josh Smith lost 6-1, 6-1 to Beavercreek sophomore Austin Chong and freshman Austin Staiger in the first round of the district tournament.
The losses ended the high school tennis careers of Greenville’s four seniors and one of the most successful seasons in Green Wave boys tennis history.
This was the first time since 2006 that Greenville had four boys tennis players qualify for the district tournament.
Greenville finished the season with a 16-4 record. The Green Wave went 9-1 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference and finished as the runner up to Troy in the American North division.
