Sean Nguyen won his Sectional match today by the score of 6-0 and 6-1 against Rockhurst’s #6 singles player. His Sectional win today gets him a spot at State in the round of 16 top players in the state. He came out and played very well in a big game. He was calm and collected and hit some great shots today. It is amazing how calm and collected Sean can be even in the big games. Sean’s next stop is State on 5/24-25.
The doubles team of Justin Cooper and Samuel Klosener also played their Sectional match against Rockhurst’s #1 and #3 players. However, they came up short losing 6-4 and 6-1. They came out pretty consistent hitting some great shots and great returns to hang in the first set. Rockhurst really picked up their game and they couldn’t quite keep up. We were really proud of how they played against a really good team. They had a good year together.
Team Sectionals is next for the Jags. We play Rockhurst on Friday (5/17) at 3:30pm while Liberty plays Park Hill.
Next week is State. Team State is Thursday (5/23) and Individual State is Friday (5/24) and Saturday (5/25).
