The Polk County Wolverines went into doubles tennis play against West Henderson Monday, April 16 needing just one more win on the court to call the match a victory. With that match pretty much in the bag, it was Owen that Coach Richard Davis looked to beat.
“West Henderson was a good team and a good tune up after spring break before Owen,” Davis said. “But Owen was the team we had to beat.”
For the Wolverines, confidence was vital as they headed into a rematch against Owen Tuesday, April 17.
The Wolverines lost to Owen two weeks ago, 5-4, and needed to beat Owen in order to have the chance to play a tiebreaking match and make their way into regional play as a team.
Unfortunately, that dream was cut short for Davis and his guys as they fell 6-3 Tuesday night.
