WG tennis makes History
by Anthony Geraci, News Editor
West Geauga's tennis team is having a historic season. After taking a close 2nd in the CVC, they want to qualify for the final four of the state team tournement. Compared to any previous year, this is their best by far. The team record is currently a solid 10-3. In regard to the CVC, the tennis team gave the first place victors, Orange, a run for their money this year. Orange has won the CVC without challenge for the past few years, but this year West G. only lost by four points, taking two of the five championships. Jon Hanover and Shane McGrotty took first place in 1st doubles and Alex Davis took first in 3rd team singles.
When it came to previous years, the tennis teams haven't had much success. "This is our best start ever; the only problems were having is varsity players not showing up," said captain Jon Hanover and varsity player Eric Leventhal. Since the beginning of the season, every match that the team has lost was partly due to varsity members strictly not showing up. Apart from their problems with punctuality, the tennis team has much more to think about, like how much they have improved.
"We have a much deeper team this year, two of our greatest strengths are our 2nd doubles and 3rd singles possitions," said Hanover.
The tennis team this year also has a feasible chance to actually make it out of sectionals. At the rate the tennis team is going, there is a chance. Having never won a CVC title, the tennis team has a lot of work ahead of them. With the upcoming sectional tournament the team will have to play such schools as U.S, Beachwood, Hawken, and Aurora.
