WARSAW – Warsw boys tennis coach Rick Orban loves to see his team face great competition.
The rain on Saturday was not about to stop the Tiger boss from letting that happen either.
Despite the cancellation of the Tiger Invitational due to the inclement weather, Orban had his team move indoors to face a strong Munster team on Saturday.
Visiting Munster, sparked by a pair of three-set singles wins, topped the Tigers by a 4-1 final at the Warsaw Tennis and Fitness Club.
David Homme collected the lone win for Warsaw on the day. Homme posted a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 3 singles action for the Tigers.
Adam Richter rallied to top Colton Lind 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 at No. 1 singles. Zach Schmidt stopped Andrew Gauger 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 at No. 2 singles play.
Munster took the doubles action in straight sets as Matt Marcus and Henry Wolf topped Ryan Wettschurack and Justin Stout 6-1, 6-2. The duo of Logan Rhodes and Frank Wolf bested Hayden Steger and Spencer Britton 6-4, 6-2 on the No. 2 doubles court.
Warsaw drops to 6-5 overall with its third loss in four matches this past week against a grueling schedule. The Tigers collected a huge 3-2 conference win at Northridge Tuesday night before losing to No. 8 Homestead on Wednesday and at Fort Wayne Canterbury on Thursday.
Warsaw, which is 3-1 in NorthernLakes Conference play, will host league foe and county rival Wawasee on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. The Tigers then finish NLC play with league matches at NorthWood on Thursday and at Concord on Sept. 19.
