The Archbold boys tennis team finished its regular season with a 3-2 loss at Napoleon, Monday, May 9.

The Streaks played in the Division II sectional tournament, Thursday, May 12, and Saturday, May 14.

Jereme Rupp and the doubles duo of Alex Short and Luke McQuade both finished fourth at the Division II sectional tournament at Defiance College and advance to the Division II district meet at Bowling Green State University that begins today, Wednesday, and finishes Saturday, May 21.

“It’s great that we were able to get both first singles and first doubles to the district level,” said James Kidder, AHS head coach.

“These young men worked hard all season. They have each improved significantly.

“It has been a long time since we have sent someone to this level in the state tournament. I am sure they are all thrilled with their performances at sectionals, as am I.

“Now, I am looking forward to seeing Alex, Luke and Jereme give their best in Bowling Green.”
