The Cardinal Ritter Boys Tennis Team beat Speedway in round 1 of the IHSAA Sectional championship on Wednesday and followed that up with a narrow loss to Covenant Christian the next day. Even though the team was knocked out, senior standout, Nathan Sepe won at #1 Singles both days to advance to the IHSAA Regionals.
On Wednseday, 1 and 2 singles each needed 3 sets to get the W but Sepe and Josh “JC” Christian got it done. The 2 doubles team of Jack Radecki and Mark Baker won as well in 2 tight sets.
The next night the team took a loss to Covenant Christian 1-4 with Sepe as the lone winner.
It was a great year for the Raiders and the young tennis players showed signs of good things to come.
