Boys tennis: Ships host 6-team Manty Invite

By

The Manitowoc Lincoln boys tennis team hosted the six-team Manty Invite on Saturday, going 0-3 although Ships coach Bob Feller was still encouraged.

“We’re a really inexperienced team right now,” Feller said. “We have some upperclassman who are still learning the ropes at the varsity level so this is a great learning experience.”

Lincoln fell in their first dual against Oshkosh West 5-2, with Feller pairing normal No. 1 singles player David Wronkowski with No. 1 doubles player Parker Wood in the match. The duo ended up winning 6-3, 7-6 (2), which pleased Feller.

“Oshkosh West is in our sub-sectional so I wanted to try the combination out,” Feller said. “They worked together really well and got us the win so it gives me something to think about later on.”

Tim Xiong (No. 4 singles) earned the other win 6-0, 6-1.

The Ships then narrowly losing 4-3 to Sheboygan North, with Jim Lee (No. 3 singles) winning along with Ryan Specht and Wood (No. 1 doubles) and Tim Xiong and Anders Larsen (No. 3 doubles).

Lee won 7-5, 3-6, 10-6 while Specht-Wood were victorious 6-1, 6-0 and Xiong-Larsen 6-4, 6-2.

Lincoln’s final dual came against West De Pere, falling 6-1. Wronkowski earned the lone Ships win 6-1, 6-0 at No. 1 singles.
