     The Chillicothe Hornets Boys tennis team (6-8) took sixth place in the Benton Invitational Tennis tournament held at Noyes courts in St Joseph. Chillicothe began the day as the fourth seed in the eight team event. The Hornets got off to a good start winning the number two singles and number one doubles against Savannah. The Hornets were missing several seniors due to graduation events and the junior varsity players sophomore Seth Bayte and freshmen Brenden Nelson, Noah Crowe, and Grahm Mayers were given the opportunity and the pressure. Competing against players ranking 5-10 spots ahead of them, the Hornets were unable to get the third win necessary for the victory.
In the second round, the Hornets drew Lafayette whom they had defeated 8-1 earlier in the week. Senior Jacob Henington accepted the challenge of playing the number one players from first Savannah, then Lafayette and finally Benton. Each round Jacob had tougher competition and each round Jacob fought harder with little to show. As in the previous round senior Nick Malloy won in singles and the doubles team of senior Dalton Rosenbach and sophomore Tyler Maasdam won. With Lafayette unable to provide a full team the Hornets advanced to the consolation final against Benton.
     The trend continued, Malloy won as did Rosenbach and Maasdam. With the consolation plaque at stake freshmen Brenden Nelson and Noah Crowe appeared up for the pressure. Brenden is the number 12 player and Noah is 13th on the Hornet squad, trying to knock off players 6 and 7 on the Benton squad. The match went back and forth with the Hornets regaining a narrow lead at 5-4. Then the Benton pair took a lead at 6-5. Nelson and Crowe tied it up at 8-8 before losing the battle at 8-10.
      The individual points leader in each category (#1 singles, #2 singles, #1doubles etc) received a medal. Nick Malloy was 3-0 on the day and took the silver medal in #2 singles. Dalton Rosenbach and Tyler Maasdam were also 3-0 and won the silver medal in #1 doubles. The Hornets begin district team competition by hosting Cameron on Monday, May 8.
