Doubles opens season
Colton Rempel and Cason Steinert were winless as the only two playing doubles for Hillsboro at a Clay Center tournament opening the season this past week.
They lost to teams from Clay Center, Concordia, and Sacred Heart, but their matches the matches themselves were closer than the outcome might suggest.
“This was Cason’s first ever tennis match, and he has been playing for only five practices,” coach John Ruder said. “I thought he did amazing for his experience level.
“Colton played well. This is just his second year in tennis. They played hard and never gave up.” Ruder said.
