Ram Tennis Has 1-1 Week

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Shelbyville followed up their 2-0 week, last week, by going 1-1. They lost to Mt. Zion on Tuesday, 1-8, then beat Decatur LSA on Thursday, 5-4. 

The only Ram to win against Mt. Zion was Nathan Vasko, who won at #1 singles.

"Mt. Zion is probably the best team in our area and we struggled to get wins," said Ram tennis coach Ross Forlines. "They probably have the deepest team we will face. It was good for Vasko to continue his win streak against a tough kid at #1."
 
The LSA match was a different story, as the Rams notched the win with four singles wins and a decisive doubles victory that put Shelby over the top.
 
Vasko's win streak in singles was broken, losing (6-1, 6-3)
 
"Vasko played one of the area's best players," Coach Forlines said. "The score doesn't show how well he actually played. I thought he opened up and really gave Sandgren fits. If he continues to play like this, he can really advance far this year." 
 
Tristan Wade lost in #2 singles (6-1, 6-3).
 
"I don't know if Tristan has ever played this well," Forlines said. "I asked the guys to play a little smarter this week and I think he definitely made that happen. Again,the score doesn't indicate how well Tristan played. We haven't played a team with that good of a #2 all year."
 
The top two Rams lost, but the compliment of Ram singles stepped up.
 
Jared Finley in #3 singles survived a 7-5 1st set, then cruised inthe second set, 6-2.
 
"Finley's win was a big win at singles," Coach Forlines said. "There is still room to improve, but he was the trend-setter for us. He got our first win and set up our overall team victory."
