Lewis Mills 5, Litchfield 0
It was another commanding victory for the Lewis Mills boys tennis team as the Spartans posted a 5 -0 victory. All five matches were won in straight sets.   My question is, where did Spring go?  Hopefully tomorrow and the rest of the week brings nicer more pleasant weather.

Individual Results
#1 Singles: Trevor Robinson (Mills) defeated Matthias Kruse (Litchfield): 6-0, 6-1
Trevor had his kick serve going today, which really impacted Matthias ability to return Trevor's serve.  Trevor also hit some heavy topspin shots in the corners, which Matthias could not return.

#2 Singles: Holden Robinson (Mills) defeated Harris Krizmanich (Litchfield): 6-0, 6-0
Holden moved Harris all around the court and I was very impressed with Holden's backhand, which he hit with power and placed well.

#3 Singles: Bill Bentley (Mills) defeated Tom Wall (Litchfield)): 6-1, 6-1
Bill took advantage of Tom's weaker second serve and was hitting forehand winners that Tom could not return.

#1 Doubles:Sinclair Bush and Jake Perfetto (Mills) defeated Mike Brightly and Ryan Schoerner (Litchfield): 6-2, 6-3
Sinclair and Jake played another great match together.  I was impressed with both players' ability to hit strong service returns.  This lead to the net player being able to move more aggressively.  I will be interested to see how Jake and Sinclair play tomorrow against a strong Northwestern team.

#2 Doubles: (Mills) Eric Jameson and Jeff Molgano defeated Jon Simonin and Tristan Roueto (Litchfield): 6-1, 6-0
Eric and Jeff played well at second doubles again, particularly at being consistent and not making too many unforced errors.  Overall I am impressed with how both doubles team seem to be taking to the change our line-up and hopefully this success will continue.

It was another very impressive win that puts us at 9-0 on the season. I enjoyed watching the team play smart, aggressive tennis. Next up is a match against Northwestern on Tuesday.
