Edwardsburg wins Niles Quad

NILES — The Edwardsburg boys tennis team gave a dominating performance winning the Niles Quad Wednesday.

The Eddies swept all eight flight championships en route to scoring 32 points and easily outdistancing runner-up Berrien Springs, which finished with 22 points. The host Vikings were third with 14 points and New Buffalo/Bridgman fourth with 12.

It was the season opener for all four teams. Due to Michigan High School Athletic Association guidelines for competition during the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament was reduced from its usual eight teams to four. The tournament was also played in two sessions to maintain the correct number of participants and social distancing.

Winning singles championships for Edwardsburg were Harrison Smith, Noah Taulbee, Isaac Merrill and Ethan Emenacker.

The Eddies’ doubles teams of Noah Layer and Trace Miliken, P.J. Albright and Tommy Oppman, Aden Hurd and Elliott Smith, along with Nathan Hayes and Hudson Habertand, were also champions.

Niles had a pair of runners-up in Chase Lotsbaich at No. 1 singles, as well as Sam Knight and Huck Coffee at No. 2 doubles.

The Vikings and Eddies will head to Portage to compete in the West Portage Invitational on Friday. This was originally the Vicksburg Quad, but has been moved since more courts are available in Portage to keep social distancing.

Play is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
