Sophomore James Trout earned the No. 2 position and has gone 16-0. Sophomore Matthew Maurer, a solid tournament player, is at No. 3 singles. The No. 1 doubles team is Layton Grothe and Nic Keller and the No. 2 team is Grayson Gilbert and Brent Sherman.
“I’m so pleased with their attitude,” Gilbert said “After the disappointment of last year, we were hoping to get back to state. We would really like to get to the next level.”
