The Lions split two matches and were rained out of Saturday's Beaver Dam Invitational last week.

The Lions lost at Greendale, 6-1, to open the week 1-6. Phil Schinner was the only flight winner at No. 4 singles, prevailing (2-6, 6-4, 6-4) over Greendale's Kyle Senft.

"Coach Steve Mader has a great program in Greendale and always fields a quality team, but we were looking for a closer result in this match," Ike coach Mike Lenders said. "We performed well at times but a recurring theme was that the Greendale players were just better in the key moments.

"I think the match was much closer than the 6-1 score would indicate, as a few critical points could have turned a few matches in our favor. I was especially pleased with Blake Duffin's performance at Number 2 singles. He battled hard versus a great opponent and gave his all for the team."

Two days later, the Lions beat Greenfield, 5-2, at the Princeton Club.

Second singles Blake Duffin, No. 4 singles Nitish Katta in his varsity debut, first doubles of Michael Dunham/Steve Evans, second doubles Jake Zimmerman/Ryan Fischer and third doubles Greg Lawton/Nick Sommers all won.

"We fielded six varsity reserve players for this match, and I was very pleased with their performance," Jenders said. "Nitish Katta won the match-clinching victory in his first match at this level and Jake Zimmerman and Ryan Fischer showed great spirit and determination in their doubles win. It was great to have the resting varsity players on hand to support their teammates."
