Tennis: Cabrini starts season with loss to Steiner

Cabrini welcomed Rudolph Steiner of Ann Arbor last Monday and was handed a 6-2 loss by the Storm.

For the Monarchs, the two wins came in No. 1 doubles and No. 2 doubles.

At No. 1 doubles was Paul Williams and Stevie Hecmanczuk and at No. 2 doubles was C.J. Franklin and Parker Conway.

Coach JR Muniz said his team gave a strong effort in the battle with Rudolph Steiner, including No. 3 doubles team of Stuart Krezinsky and Noah Shade and No. 4 doubles team of Chris Villalata and Chris Kachigan.

“Our kids stayed right in there, losing some tough, three-set matches,” Muniz said.

Last Thursday the Monarchs took on Anderson and were handed a 7-0 defeat in a meet that was shortened by bad weather.

Richard

The season for Richard opened with the Kennedy Early Bird Invitational, which took place on Aug. 23. The Pioneers finished fifth at the event, with 12 total points.

No. 1 singles Jon Rhind won all of his matches in straight sets, which earned him the tournament “Top Gun” honor, said Richard Coach Shane Holzworth.

At No. 2 singles, Will Gajda also won a match. To do it, he had to overcome a 0-4 deficit in his third set against Livonia Franklin’s Jacob Liberati.

“Overall the tourney provided for new experiences for our large crop of freshmen and new tennis players,” Holzworth said. “Although the finish of fifth didn’t sit well with us, we saw a lot of positive from each and every match.”
