The end of the tennis season was a bittersweet one for Fremont Ross coach Lisa Wolfe.
While the Little Giants finished their campaign with a 4-1 win over Port Clinton and a strong 14-4 team record, saying good-bye to her team is not going to be easy.
“I sincerely hate for the season to end, it’s tough to say good-bye to such great kids, on and off the court,” Wolfe said. “This will be the hardest awards night to get through as a coach, probably since my three daughters graduated, and that was one at a time – this is six at one time.”
The Little Giants swept the singles competition from the Redskins with straight-set wins from Nate Rellinger, Marshall Kuieck and Dylan Willey.
The No. 1 doubles team of Robert Joerg and Connor Martin win without losing a game while the No. 2 doubles pair of Joe Meyer and Kortni Lagrou lost by scores of 6-4, 6-1.
“I have so much respect for them, as they do for me,” said Wolfe, who was named TRAC Coach of the Year. “I thanked them because of the other coaches’ comments on how they were such a respectful team and how the give and take between us was very evident.”
Joerg (No. 1 singles) and Rellinger (No. 2 singles) will continue their careers Wednesday in the district tournament at Bowling Green.
