Blend and Matt Primozic won 6-0, 6-1. - Photo by Barb Hunter The Plymouth Panthers won every match in straight sets as they earned an impressive 5-1 win over Slinger in a boys nonconference tennis meet Monday afternoon at Slinger.

The victory upped the Panthers’ dual record to 2-0. PHS opened its season Saturday afternoon with a 4-3 nonconference victory over host Green Bay Preble.

The No. 1 singles match in the Slinger meet between Plymouth’s Nick Eggert and Chris Peters wasn’t completed due to rain. Eggert was leading 6-4, 4-0 when play was halted.

Plymouth’s Charlie Klimpel sustained a leg injury in the No. 4 singles match and was unable to continue playing which resulted in a forfeit win for Thomas Melius.

“My team looked strong against Slinger. Though it was chilly and we ended up getting rained out at the end, the team looked relaxed and in control,” said Panther head coach Chuck Salibi.

“I believe the team will do well this season as we continue to build and improve – as long as we can get out on the courts,” Salibi said.

The junior varsity matches were rained out.

PREBLE MEET

A sweep in the singles matches, all in straight sets, propelled PHS to victory over Preble.

The Panthers’ singles winners included: Eggert, 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1; Gabe Binversie, 6-4, 6-2, No. 2; Cooper Ebbott, 6-1, 6-2, No. 3; and Inigo Acedo-Fernandez, 6-0, 6-4 at No. 4.

Preble won all of the doubles matches. Competing for PHS were Steven Blend and Matt Primozic, who lost 2-6, 3-6 at No. 1; Klimpel and Owen Henriksen, 4-6, 3-6, No. 2; and Corbin Dewey and Tyler Equitz, 1-6, 2-6.

“This is a great way to start the season, considering the weather and I am very proud of my players as all of them kept fighting throughout the match,” said Salibi.
