Kettle Run boys tennis 5, Fauquier 1
For the first time in program history, the Kettle Run Cougars beat the Fauquier boys tennis team in Warrenton to sweep the Falcons during the regular season.
The Cougars defeated Fauquier, 5-1, Monday on the road in a rain-shortened match after beating the Falcons, 5-4, last month.
“It really shows the growth of our team,” Kettle Run coach Stephen Sviatko said. “I am hoping the momentum from this match will carry over.”
The Cougars have a 7-4 record overall and a 3-2 mark in Conference 27 after a 9-0 loss Saturday to conference-leader James Monroe.
“Our goal at the beginning of the year was to win the conference tournament and advance farther then the first round of regionals,” Sviatko said. “Even though we have lost twice against James Monroe, I believe we haven’t played our best tennis against them yet.”
Against Fauquier, Kettle Run No. 1 singles player Nick Meding won, 10-1, No. 2 Andrew Rainger won, 10-2, No. 3 Ryan Powell won, 10-2, No. 5 Luke Schwenke won, 10-2, and No. 6 KP Deliee won, 10-0.
The teams did not play any doubles matches due to rain.
“I was very pleased with how we played in the conditions,” Sviatko said.
