Coach David adds: “The boys could get discouraged, but they keep improving, keep trying, and keep enjoying themselves. I tell them that there are more ways to win then just beating their opponent. That they can win by striving to get better, by having a good attitude, and by doing their best.”
Brody Bunnell summed up the team’s attitude as he walked off the court when he said “Coach, we really did have a good time out there”. Tanner Stueck played his best tennis of the season. Facing off against the best player in the conference, Stueck gave Rhinelander s Johnson all he could handle. The match really swung on a few points, and though Tanner came out on the short end, he played impressively.
Antigo plays next at home on Tuesday.
