The Eagles proved victorious in tennis, boys soccer and junior high cross country this week.

On Monday, the tennis team downed Waldron 4-1. In singles play, No. 1 Duncan Ricci defeated Mike Forthofer 6-0, 6-2 and No. 3 Dakota Patterson beat Chris Britt 7-5, 6-2.

The duo of Nathan Miller and Shane Franklin won over Jake Lefler and Skylar Peetz in three sets, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, at No. 1 doubles. Their counterparts at No. 2 doubles, Bryce Fish and Brady Rose, defeated Travis Wheelin and Brandon Dalley 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

The sole loss came at No. 2 singles, where Evan Rose dropped his match against Xavier Brown 6-4, 6-2.

“Well, we shook some things up tonight and for the most part the team responded with a win,” stated Coach Kevin Roush in an emailed statement.  “A couple of three-set victories is a good sign.”

The girls golf team concluded its inaugural season by placing last at sectional. That did not dissuade the coach from complimenting the efforts of the players, who all had limited or no golfing experience prior to the season.

“Coach VanNess and I are extremely proud of these young ladies for not only making significant improvement with their golf skills, but also for demonstrating strong character and representing our school and community in a favorable way,” stated Coach Brad Baughman. “Because we return three of the four next season, we have reason to set loftier goals. A six to 10 player roster would really be nice next year, so one of our goals is to stir up some more interest, especially with the current eighth grade class and the underclassmen.”

Freshman Sharon Walters led the Eagles with a 107 over 18 holes. Josie Gray finished with 120, Mary Kate McCann scored 121 and Mattie Lucas shot a 153.

The junior high boys and girls cross country teams beat Hauser on Monday. Maddy Fields took first place with a time of 13:27 to lead the girls team and Wyatt Wyman finished second overall in the boys race.

“Congratulations to both teams for a fine effort,” stated Coach Thor Davis.

The boys soccer team dropped a 3-1 loss to Bedford North Lawrence on Monday, but blanked Hauser 5-0 on Tuesday to improve to 8-2-2 on the season. Collin Graeber, Leeland Kesler, Bryce Gray, Isaac Gluesenkamp and Lucas Pela each scored goals. Reid Johnson tallied three saves in the victory.

The tennis team picked up a second win for the week on Tuesday when it swept Western Indiana Conference foe Sullivan 5-0.

Ricci, Patterson and Brady Rose scored victories in singles play, while Miller and Franklin and Fish and Evan Rose won at doubles.

“This was a great win for the eagles,” stated Roush. “Everyone played great tonight. Sullivan was a little down this year, but sometimes a team that is struggling can creep up on you and surprise you. Brady really pulled together a great match. I was really proud of him and the way he didn't give up.”

The team improved to 8-9 overall and 3-3 in the WIC. The next match is against Edignburgh on senior night at home on Thursday starting at 5 p.m.
