NILES - The Niles tennis team isn't too happy with the outcome of Wednesday afternoons match against Marshall, and neither is head coach Rob Babler.
The Vikes fell to Marshall 8-0 and coach admits his team could have played a lot better.
Tyler Sauerbrey took the 6-1, 6-1 win over Ari Fernandez at No. 1 singles. At No. 2 singles Kevin Schook defeated Colin Smith 6-1, 6-1. Bryan Berger took the win at No. 3 singles against Nate Fink 6-3, 7-6 and Brendon O'Connell defeated Nick Neumann at No. 4 singles 6-1, 6-1.
At No. 1 doubles Dan Rodts and Julian Freas fell to Jacob Simmons and Adam Kingston 4-6, 4-6. Nick Hopkins and Will Mayer defeated Jonathan Smith and Jeff Pugh at No. 2 doubles 6-1, 6-2.
At No. 3 doubles Jon Poole and Mark Nesser fell to Remy Dillon and Dan Hibler 1-6, 6-4 and 2-6 and Levi Grooms and Skyler Mudd fell to Hemrique Boscolo and Eric Ebner at No. 4 doubles 1-6, 4-6.
The Vikes can hopefully puy on a better performance this weekend when it travels to the Paw Paw Invitational set to begin at 9 a.m.
