Big Rapids beat Cadillac in tennis; more preparations | sports

CADILLAC – Cadillac ended its regular season, losing 7-1 to Big Rapids in a non-conference tennis match on Wednesday.

“We knew a match against a highly ranked Big Rapids would be a challenge for us,” said Cadillac coach Matt Schaefer.

“We got a nice win in the number 3 singles and played some good sets on other flights. It wasn’t enough for us to get the win, but we played hard against them.

“Our focus now is on playing our best tennis of the season so we can make some noise at the Big North Conference tournament and MHSAA regionals over the next two weeks.”

Davin Brown lost 6-2, 7-6 (7-3) at number 1 singles, while Henry Schmittdiel lost 6-2, 7-5 at number 2.

Brady Koenig won 6-3, 6-4 at #3, while Matt Erickson lost 6-2, 6-2 at #4.

Chris Anderson and Oscar Kendell lost 6-4, 6-1 at number 1 doubles, while Tommy Reagan and Keaston Johnson lost 6-2, 6-1 at number 2.

Woodlen Paca and Drew Drabik lost 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 at #3, while Max McCumber and Ben Anderson lost 6-1, 7-5 at #4.

Cadillac competes in the Big North Finals next Wednesday at Traverse City West.

CHEBOYGAN – Christian from Northern Michigan played well but lost 2-1 to Cheboygan in an NMSL match.

“It was a really good game and fun to watch tonight,” said NMC coach Taylor Mulder.

“Overall, we play well and we play the football we know how to play.

“Unfortunately for us, Cheboygan scored two fantastic goals and we couldn’t get enough into the net to cancel them out. Overall, I’m happy with our game tonight and look forward to our continued progress for the rest of the season.”

Barrett Bosscher scored for the Comets after an assist from Blake DeZeeuw.

DeZeeuw had five saves on goal for NMC.

Comets are in Leland on Saturday.
