By Justin Webster | Apr 20, 2018

Fairfield boys’ tennis No. 1 Gannon Courtright missed the Trojans’ match at Fort Madison Tuesday, due to the track team competing at the Don Newell Relays in Sigourney. However his teammates led FHS to a 6-3 Southeast Conference victory over the Bloodhounds in his absence.

Logan Williams and Dante Cingire both shifted up from No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, and were victorious in straight sets while doing so.

Senior Jarod Willmon lost in the No. 3 slot, 4-6, 5-7 to freshman Jason Thurman.

Junior A.J. Greiner won easily 6-1, 6-1, but classmate Will Sheppard struggled with Vasin Thurman in the No. 5 slot and lost 1-6, 3-6.

Sophomore Noel Peterson slid up into the No. 6 spot from the junior varsity roster and after losing his opening set 4-6, won 6-1, 10-5 for the match victory.
