Nate Rellinger (No. 2 singles), Jonathan Alexander (No. 3 singles), and Marshall Kuieck and Dylan Henry (No. 2 doubles) each won in straight sets as Ross won the non-conference matchup.
“This was a great season opener because it was a very tight match and made my team really compete and play hard for each court win,” Little Giants coach Lisa Wolfe said. “Nate did a really nice job. He really showed his mental game by adjusting the second set by sitting back on the baseline until the right time to approach instead of rushing the net and getting passed … smart player.”
Connor Martin and Dylan Willey (No. 1 doubles) also won in consecutive sets by taking two tiebreakers for Ross (1-0).
“Connor and Dylan had a very even match,” Wolfe said. “They kept their focus on each point and that’s what you have to do when you play so equally with an opponent and end up in a tiebreaker … or two.
“Jonathan, and Marshall and Dylan also did a great job. It was a perfect way to start the season and finally nice weather.”
Rellinger was primarily at No. 1 doubles last season.
