Yesterday, the  Bulldogs travelled to Pekin for varsity tennis. As warmups subsided and games began, the Bulldogs battered aces and rallies like it was nothing.

“I felt really good at net during the second set,” junior Jared Wright said. “My serves stayed consistent. I just had to keep playing how [Rich and I] started.”

Wright and senior Alex Rich won their sets 6-0 and 6-3. The other doubles team, junior Ben Stock and sophomore Cody Medley, won 6-0 and 6-2. In singles, junior Nolan Keeler won 6-0 both sets and senior Logan Conrad won 6-0 and 6-1.
