Veterans Van Hoy, Edington, Hurst Returning for Panther Tennis Team
August 15, 2007 - Knightstown varsity boys tennis coach David Blower has perhaps more to work with this season than in recent years, and the team opens its season at home against Union County next Tuesday.
Veteran Jordan Van Hoy heads up the netters, and is a two-year letter winner. A senior, Van Hoy is a good doubles player and could end up playing singles matches this year.
Another senior leader on the team will be Kyle Edington, a three-year letterman who will miss the season opener against the Patriots. Edington is in basic training with the Indiana National Guard and will be joining the team this week. He is expected to be the number three singles player.
Michael Hurst is another veteran, returning for his fourth season for the Panthers. Blower said the three-year letterman has been playing well in practice and could be another singles player.
Sophomore Tyler Koons is playing tennis for the first time, and has been showing steady improvement during practice. Two freshmen could also see considerable match time this year. Nicholas Dalton is described by Blower as a “good player with solid ground strokes.” He could end up grabbing one of the singles spots.
Mitchell Marsischke is also a freshman and has been showing steady improvement as well. Blower said the team’s primary goals are to do well in the White River Athletic Conference and Henry County tournaments.
“We would like to have a couple of all-conference players,” Blower said. “We want to have fun, learn the game and put 100 percent into every match, win or lose.”
The Panther open their season Tuesday at home against Union County, and battle Frankton a week later, also on the Panther courts.
