(Story by Coach Bob Long)
The Chillicothe Hornet Boys' Tennis Team (1-1) were defeated by the Marshall Owls 4-5 Tuesday in Marshall. In varsity doubles, Max Anderson and Jacob Henington lost to Jalal Alhamzawi and Isaac Summers of Marshall 4-10. Dalton Rosenbach and Nick Malloy lost 8-10 to William Raines and Zach Baker. Hornets Tyler Maasdam and Bryce Larson won 10-7 over Luke Jackson and Hunter Repp.
     In singles, Max Anderson lost 1-10 to Alhamzawi, Jacob Henington went down 2-10 to Summers. Sophomore Hornet Tyler Maasdam gave the team life taking an early lead on Zach Baker, followed by senior Bryce Larson. Larson won the first three games against Hunter Repp. Senior Nick Malloy started last, but led throughout against Luke Jackson. Nick eventually won 10-4. After a 9-9 tie, Tyler won the final two games for a 11-9 victory. Bryce kept a one game advantage until the end, when he extended his lead for a 10-7 win. Senior Dalton Rosenbach fought from behind against Marshall's William Raines in the deciding match. Dalton trailed 1-4, before closing the gap at 5-6. The senior Owl began to play conservative and was able to secure the win for Marshall with a 10-6 victory.
     The Marshall team is extremely talented and very well coached and provides appreciated stiff competition before the Hornets move into conference play. Marshall returned three varsity players (including their top two) from the 18-1 quarterfinal team of 2016. Having lost 0-9 in 2016 and only returning one varsity player, the Hornets played terrific.        Max and Jacob played two of the best players they will face all season. Tyler and Bryce won tight matches. Nick won convincingly and Dalton in defeat, forced his opponent to change his tactics. The Hornets compete Friday, March 31 at Excelsior Springs at 3:00 p.m. (rescheduled from Monday). The Cameron Invitational Tournament has been rescheduled for Friday, April 7.
