     The Chillicothe Hornets varsity participated in the MEC conference tournament at Noyes Courts in St Joseph. Seniors Max Anderson and Jacob Henington received the number two seed and finished second in doubles. The Hornet duo played some of their best tennis of the season defeating Curtis and Funk from Cameron for the second time this week. Kempf and Archer are the best doubles team in the conference and playing them was good experience. Despite the tournament being double-elimination, it took only one team to knock out Hornets Tyler Maasdam and Bryce Larson. In between, the Chillicothe sophomore and senior beat Benton's number two doubles team on the season (Tyler and Bryce are number 3 for Chillicothe). Senior Dalton Rosenbach placed sixth in singles. Dalton defeated Raven Handsaker of Savannah for the second time in less than a week. This time it went to a tie-breaker. Handsaker had control of the last point, but Dalton turned the table with a slice that caught the line. Corby Roush of Maryville defeated Dalton in the consolation final after he had beat Hornet Nick Malloy in the consolation semi-final. It seemed to be a day of rematches. Nick Malloy beat Noah Caldwell 8-1 in Chillicothe, and topped that performance with an 8-0 win. Nick is a tough out in singles. Hadley Miller is Lafayette's number one player and the three seed. Nick won the first game, but couldn't solve the clever Lafayette seniors shots. Teddy Sommers is LeBlond's number two, and after falling down 0-4, Nick roared back winning 8-5.
     With the exception of the strange draw for Maasdam and Larson the tournament was a success. Anderson and Henington played up to their potential. Rosenbach and Malloy played well and when they lost it was to very good players. Each player and duo got a win including Maasdam and Larson's quality win.  the varsity players had multiple deuce games, but were unable to win the majority.
