Prep boys tennis overview: Roncalli eyes 5th straight conference title

By

Roncalli

Coach: Bob Nelson, 34th year

Last year: First in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference (20-4 overall)

Returning letter winners: Brett Giesen, jr.; Joel Ledvina, sr.; Ben Brotz, sr.; Haydon Boettcher, jr.; Brady Boettcher, so.; Anthony Marchelewski, jr.

Outlook: The Jets will be strong with its No. 1-4 singles players and its No. 1 doubles team. The No. 2 doubles team will be OK, but Nelson said the No. 3 and No. 4 doubles are up in the air.

He is hoping to compete again this season for a conference title, but says his squad won’t be as dominant as it has in year’s past.

He cites Two Rivers, Plymouth and Kohler as the conference’s major competition.

Lincoln

Coach: Bob Feller, 39th year

Last year: Second in the Fox River Classic Conference (16-4, 6-1 FRCC)

Returning letter winners: Michael Olson, sr.; Jake Rohrer, sr.; Nick Schroeder, sr.; Jonah Mrozinsky, sr.; Parker Wood, jr.; David Wronkowski, jr.; Derek Rohrer, so.; Logan Swanson, so.

Outlook: With eight returning letter winners, the Ships have a lineup that brings presence and experience to the court. Feller said his singles players will be competitive and his No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams are experienced enough to win.

The question mark for the team is its No. 3 doubles pair as Feller looks at Green Bay Notre Dame as being a top team in the FRCC.

Two Rivers

Coach: Amanda Pribek, third year

Last year: Second in the EWC (15-3 overall, 8-2 EWC)

Returning letter winners: Brock Gospodarek, sr.; Cameron Greene, sr.; Brian Ruedinger, sr.; Ian Guyette, sr.; Alex Daffner, jr; Dave Matthews, jr.; Brice Ruedinger, jr.; Brody Joyce, jr.

Outlook: The doubles teams will the Raiders’ strength while singles will be a building year Pribek said. The team is looking to defend its second-place finish in the EWC and is also looking to get more than one doubles team to State this year, something Pribek said the team has the potential to do.
