Much like the Lady Bulldogs tennis team, the boys team is led by a first-year head coach. Blake VandeBunte takes over the program, which is currently 0-4.
Last year’s team had numerous seniors, but this year’s team is led by five more seniors for Nos. 1 through 5. The team has one freshman on the seven-player squad.
The team is led by Ryan McDermott, a senior, as the No. 1 player. McDermott pairs with fellow senior Jeff Dentler (No. 3).
No. 2 player Codie Mundy, a senior, teams up with Adam Lehman (No. 4) for the team’s second doubles team.
Mundy and Lehman boast a winning record so far this season, according to VandeBunte.
VandeBunte said the team’s strength is its doubles.
“(The doubles teams) are very tough to beat,” he said. “We have struggled in singles — too many unforced errors.”
