Roncalli’s Brady Boettcher, along with Zach LeVene (not pictured) give the Jets a pair of returning State qualifiers.

Roncalli

Coach: Bob Nelson, 36th year

Last year: 10-6, 7-2 (second, Eastern Wisconsin Conference)

Returning letter winners: Brady Boettcher, sr.; Zach LeVene, jr.; Mitch Tegen, jr.; Lucas Peterson, jr.; Christian Sosa, sr.; Joe Brotz, jr.

Outlook: Boettcher and LeVene both went to State last season, in doubles and singles, respectively. Nelson is confident in the top of his lineup anchored by the state qualifiers but is uncertain beyond them. He thinks the Jets will compete along with Plymouth and Kohler for the EWC crown.

Manitowoc Lincoln

Coach: Bob Feller, 41st year

Last year: 9-11, 5-2 (third, Fox River Classic Conference)

Returning letter winners: Derek Rohrer, sr.; Ryan Specht, sr.; Tim Xiong, sr.; Logan Swanson, sr.; Steven Manis, sr.; Sean Englebrecht, sr.; Anders Larsen, sr.; Austyn Holschbach, sr.;

Outlook: Feller says that while the Ships boast a senior-laden roster most of them don’t have much experience. He feels the teams dedication and work ethic will help make up for any lack of experience. Feller feels Lincoln has a chance to compete in the East Division due to several teams going through a rebuilding phase.

Two Rivers

Coach: Amanda Pribek, fifth year

Last year: 11-4 7-2 (fourth, EWC)

Returning letter winners: Torgny Simons, so.; Gavin Koch, jr.

Outlook: Simons and Koch return to give the Raiders a strong base at No. 1 and No. 2 singles. Pribek says this will be a rebuilding year following the graduation of eight seniors. She’s pleased though with the potential of such a young squad which contains just three upperclassmen.
