    • 8/13/20
      Pendleton Heights – Scrimmage (H)
    • 8/18/20
      Lawrence Central
      W 4-1.

      The Trojans returned to play for the first time in 2020 and began their season with an all-around strong mental performance. #1d Sam McCarthy-Young (12)/James Duncan (12) took a 6-2, 6-4 win for the Trojans’ first point. Close behind was #2d William Pruitt (10)/Alex Konvolinka (10) who saw their match go 6-3, 6-1. Grant Millman (12) at #1s took a close lead in the first set 7-5. Throughout the second set, neither player could hold serve and the final five games were each a break. Grant took a commanding lead in the tiebreak and didn’t look back, winning 7-6(2) to clinch the third point for the Trojans. The fourth point came from #2s Sam Annakin, after falling 3-6 in the first set, collected himself and took a 6-3, 5-0 lead. Sam admits he “got comfortable” and strayed away from his game plan, landing him in a tight 5-4 third set. He closed it out ultimately getting off court with a 6-4 dub.

    • 8/20/20
      Ben Davis
      W 5-0.

      Against a stronger Ben Davis team than we have seen in a few years, the Trojans kept their cool and prevailed on all courts 5-0.

    • 8/24/20
      Lebanon
      Canceled
    • 8/27/20
      Park Tudor
      L 1-4.

      An “oh what could have been!” The Trojans fall 1-4 on the evening after ultimately possessing a chance to win the match 4-1. The sole point earned for the Trojans was an outstanding performance by #2d sophomores William Pruitt & Alex Konvolinka 6-3, 6-4. Grant Millman saw the light tonight, putting together a heck of a match at #1s. En route to a 7-6(4), 6-7(4), 6-10 defeat, Millman showed incredible patience and grit. He forced his opponent to beat him in 20 ball rallies time and time again, an outstanding feat considering the history of the name on the front of his opponents jersey. Sam Annakin at #2s had an equally impressive singles battle tonight also seeing an incredible number of 15-20 ball rallies. However, after winning the first set in confident stride 6-2, the Panther rallied to overcome his deficit taking Sam in three sets, 4-6, 4-6.

    • 9/1/20
      Guerin Catholic
      L 0-5.

      Varsity saw straight losses come on all courts despite close efforts by #2s Sam Annakin (4-6, 4-6) & #2d William Pruitt/William Dietrick (2-6, 6-7(5)).

    • 9/4/20
      Lawrence North
      L 1-4.

      The Wildcats put out their three best players at 1-2-3 singles tonight and cleaned house on the Trojans. The closest match was Sam Annakin at #2s, falling 3-6, 4-6. The sole Trojan victory came from an awesome performance by #1d Sam McCarthy-Young/James Duncan winning 6-4, 7-5. Sam McCarthy-Young moved exceptionally well at the net after spending the day before grinding through doubles drills. This earned him the Player of the Week award and shiny new blue tee!

    • 9/8/20
      Cathedral
      L 0-5.

      Ethan Pratt (12) took on Levi Wojtalik at #1s and just keeps improving on the year. He played his best tennis to date this season, but Wojtalik was firing on all cylinders. Sam McCarthy-Young/James Duncan were in at #2d and fell down 4-6 in the first set before battling back to a 7-6(6) second set tiebreak win. The duo couldn’t keep up their dominance at the net and dropped a 3-6 third set.

    • 9/9/20
      Cardinal Ritter
      W 5-0.

      Sam Annakin/James Duncan were in at #1d and took home a 6-0, 6-0 victory. Grant Millman was heavily tested at #1s where he had a very up and down match. He started up 1-0, but fell behind 1-4. He then strung together the next 11/12 games to take a 7-5, 5-1 lead. He let Mark Baker hang around before closing out the second set 6-3. Proud of him as he dug deep and found his way to win. This was Grant’s best match in holding true to his consistency and only taking dictating the point after it had developed into a eight ball plus rally.

    • 9/12/20
      Terre Haute Invitational
      vs
      Guerin Catholic
      L 0-5

      #10 Guerin is a tough foe this year. Despite their #1 being out again (but this time due to the ACT), their freshman got the best of Grant Millman 1-6, 0-6. Sam Annakin couldn’t quite repeat his challenging performance last week @ Guerin dropping his match 2-6, 1-6. James Duncan was in at #3s, and despite his best attempt, fell 0-6, 0-6. Sam McCarthy-Young/Ethan Pratt in at #1d just couldn’t hold serve enough to go the distance falling 1-6, 3-6. William Pruitt/William Dietrick in at #2d played such a fun match to watch. They were kings of the sandy court 9 and did their best to test Guerin for two solid hours winning the first set 7-5, while falling behind 3-6 in the second. They ultimately dropped a third set tiebreak 5-10.

      vs
      Terre Haute North
      L 0-5

      Terre Haute North put out a tough 1-2 singles line up besting our guys in straight sets. James Duncan saw the daylight and was determined to earn the W at #3s, but it was just a matter of needing a few more penetrating serves. He fell by a single break each set, 4-6, 4-6. Sam McCarthy-Young/Ethan Pratt faced a #1d team who’s aggression at the net took our guys by surprise. The kings of court 9 were at it again coming out of the gates hot to take the first set 6-3. The two let serving problems plague them in the second set falling 3-6. They jumped out to a rather large early lead in the tiebreak, but let THN hang around too long and come back. THN served out the match to dash the hopes of our Trojans boys in a 9-11 defeat.

      vs
      Southport
      W 3-2

      The promise that had shone through all day since 10am finally came to fruition about 4:30pm on Saturday. The first win of the day came to the kings of the sand trap on court 9, where William Dietrick/William Pruitt took charge 6-1, 6-1. Ethan Pratt/Sam McCarthy-Young at #1d were outmaneuvered at the net and on their serves, falling 0-6, 3-6. The nerves started to tighten up as Alex Konvolinka dropped his #3s match 2-6, 6-1,8-10. Grant Millman was next court home, earning a 6-4, 3-6, 12-10 win at #1s. Sam Annakin put just enough together after a shaky middle to win in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 and clinched a 3-2 decision for the match.

    • 9/14/20
      Covenant Christian
      W 3-2.

      Grant Millman at #1s took care of business against a fellow senior 6-4, 6-3. Sam Annakin at #2s pulled through in a third set barn burner 7-5, 5-7, 6-4. The sophomore duo of Dietrick/Pruitt came through clutch in a third at #2d 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-2 after Covenant pulled a wonky line up on us and put their #1s player who had played nearly the full season at that position suddenly in at #2d. Hmmm!!

    • 9/15/20
      Mt Vernon
      L 0-5.

      Muterspaugh cleaned up his record on the Annakin boys and let us know about it! Boys took a pretty clean licking at Mt. Vernon’s new courts this year. #1s Millman was the closest singles match, falling 4-6, 4-6 after suffering what we later learned a wrist injury chasing a ball into the fence. #2d Dietrick/Pruitt almost took down two seniors after winning the first set 6-4, but fell 6-10 in a third set tie break. Impressive new facility, hoping the BCHS tennis facility looks just like it some day…..Hmmmmm!!!

    • 9/16/20
      Scecina Memorial
      W 5-0.

      Great rebound match looking towards city. We never look ahead, but this one felt good for seeds in city. Duncan/McCarthy-Young & Dietrick/Pruitt each snagged a 6-0, 6-0 win at #1d and #2d, respectively. Millman took the the lone clean score at #1s 6-0, 6-0.

    • 9/17/20
      Brebeuf Jesuit
      L 0-5.

      The #21 state ranked Braves showed us a good look at a top 25 team. Pretty upperclassmen heavy match between the two teams, looking forward to this one next year. They can put out a good singles line up, but will our young but experienced depth carry us home? To be continued……..

    • 9/21/20
      Lebanon
      W 4-1.

      A young Lebanon team gave us a run this evening. Millman got a WHITE BALL 6-3, 6-0 W!! Pratt in at #3s had the most entertaining match of the evening, however, I’m sure his parents and our coaching staffs new gray hairs might not 100% agree! He had a few ebbs and flows, but pulled it out when we needed him 10-7 in the third. McCarthy-Young/Duncan went up against their best position and came out firing with a 6-2 first set win. But, we allowed communication and our inconsistencies to hold us back while dropping the third 1-6.

    • 9/22/20
      Heritage Christian
      W 3-2.

      Wheeewwwiii this was a HUGE match for the city tournament. Probably helped seal a podium finish with some gutsy performances tonight on the Eagles courts. Sam Annakin protected his seed winning 6-1, 6-1, but Millman and Pratt now face an uphill battle as they fell against younger guys. McCarthy-Young/Duncan came through in the clutch tonight 6-4, 7-6(2) just streaking to the finish in their tiebreak. You guys will appreciate what that means for the city draw as well.

    • 9/24/20
      New Palestine
      L 1-4.

      James Duncan saw his PT come at #2s where we needed him. He fell 4-6 in a first set, but ran his guy just enough that he came up limp on a point and could not keep playing. The INT (RET) got our only point of the night. Really thought Dietrick stepped up to play in a tight spot, but we couldn’t get the #1d pair across the finish line as they fell 6-7(2) in a third set tiebreak. It was a #1d court with three seniors on it, and our senior and sophomore let that one get away.

    • 9/25/20
      City Tournament
      Place 2nd.

      A really hard fought 2nd place finish this year. Tough to come by in the 2020 season and these guys did it. We had #2s and #2d in the finals, but that was a barn burner on the finish. Really came down to points, but Grant Millman might be the hero securing us the runner-up with a win against the regular #1s player from Covenant as he had three different casts on four limbs.

    • 9/28/20
      City Tournament (at Riverside Park)
    • 9/29/20
      Roncalli
      W 3-2.

      We sure do love 3-2 wins! Better than the alternative. Sam Annakin had a de facto #2s win 6-1, 6-1. The doubles got better through the match and played their way into the evening winning both doubles courts. Way to go guys, a nice final regular season win against a good Rebel team.

    • 9/30/20
      Sectional
      L

      We drew #14 state ranked Cathedral. After facing them in a dual match, just facing them in city, and now to be sent packing in sectional…it’s always a tough draw. As a coach, I like to see some new blood on court and face off against the Panthers, who we don’t know as well and they don’t know us. Cathedral’s singles guys are all gone next year, but so are ours. They took us 1-6, 0-6 in each of the three. Three out of four doubles players were also seniors! Our guys hung around and played well, but it just was too much age and experience to overcome.
      What a season. Man, this entire experience was marked by COVID, new protocols, weird traveling logistics, parents being barred from close viewing proximities, etc. But, in the end we were so fortunate to run a safe, successful, and enjoyable season for these boys. The young guys are itching to get their chance to play in and I hope they take this feeling right now with them and use it as a motivator to keep playing, keep fighting, and keep getting better.
      This may also be an interesting look next year as Cathedral graduates 6/7 varsity players. We know they’ll fill in the ranks, but we are excited about what’s coming up through ours!

    • 8/18/20
      Lawrence Central
      W 5-1.

      Gabe Martinez (10) in at #1s took a 6-4 win. Alex Fowler (9) cruised to a 6-1 win at #2s after his opponent called for a medical timeout mid-set. Charlie Biggs (10) was on the winning end of a 6-2 match at #3s. Jamie O’Brien (10)/Charlie Park (9) dominated their #1d opponents 6-0, while Reece Brown (9) found himself victorious in a 6-1 singles effort.

    • 8/20/20
      Ben Davis
      Tie 2-2.

      Winning points for the Trojans were #1s Jamie O’Brien 4-0, 4-0 and #3d Reece Brown & Charlie Biggs 4-0, 4-0.

    • 8/24/20
      Lebanon
      Canceled
    • 8/26/20
      Avon
      L 1-4.

      Avon’s JV team came to play and upended the Trojans 1-4. Sam Annakin was the sole victor on the evening for the Trojans, pulling out a 4-6, 6-4, 10-7 win against a talented little freshman. Sam flipped a switch in the second set and came to life, showing energy and the will to win, which carried him across the finish line. Avon was deep this year, as evidenced by the depth in their lineup. Onward Trojans, good strong night of tennis!

    • 8/27/20
      Park Tudor
      L 1-4.

      William Dietrick at #1s took a commanding win in his first round match 8-4, earning the sole point for the Trojans on the evening. Charlie Biggs and Alex Fowler played up against a senior, but ultimately saw a tight match slip away 6-8.

    • 9/1/20
      Guerin Catholic
      L 1-4.

      JV fell 1-4 with #2d Alex Fowler/Reece Brown picking up the lone victory for the Trojans (8-4).

    • 9/4/20
      Lawrence North
      L 2-3.

      JV had a little better night against the Wildcats, ultimately falling in a well contested 2-3 match. Not sure we had a third point winnable anywhere. Alex Konvolinka/Charlie Park were in at #1d and cleaned a fellow sophomore/frosh clock 8-3. Charlie Biggs/Reece Brown in at #3d swept a pair of freshman 8-0 and earned Reece the first player to 5 wins on the seasons and earned himself a new car sticker!

    • 9/8/20
      Cathedral
      L 0-5.

      The Trojans found themselves unable to force cathedral to go the distance at any position tonight. Jamie O’Brien was in at #1s and Alex Konvolinka/Gabe Martinez were in at #1d. Konvolinka/Martinez put up the strongest fight before falling in a 1-4, 2-4 decision.

    • 9/9/20
      Cardinal Ritter

      Cardinal Ritter only had six players tonight, so there was no JV competition. Instead, some fun to watch challenge matches took place….the best saw Gabe Martinez oust Alex Fowler 7-5, 6-4.

    • 9/12/20
      Terre Haute Invitational
      vs
      Terre Haute North (Exhibition)
      0-2 (Exhibition).

      There was not an official JV component to this Invitational, but that didn’t stop a couple matches from taking place. Alex Konvolinka faced THN during the morning round in 5-8 loss. There was a scoring discrepancy that did not favor us. Here’s to hoping we know what to do moving forward! The best surprise was Alex Fowler who came over with Grandmother. No sooner than did he arrive was Alex on court playing the best tennis he has to date against a fellow freshman. Alex fell 2-8 but it was so much fun to watch!

    • 9/14/20
      Covenant Christian
      W 3-2.

      King was the sole victor in the Trojan singles lineup at #3s. Park/Konvolinka took home a dub at #1d and O’Brien/Brown enjoyed a win at #2d.

    • 9/15/20
      Mt. Vernon
      L 1-4.

      Got us here, too. Pretty deep Mt. Vernon squad, but Biggs/Fowler took it to them at #3d 4-3(4), 4-1.

    • 9/16/20
      Scecina Memorial

      There were not enough Scecina players for a JV match this evening. Always enjoy coaching against Mr. Nick Batuello. His brother and I go back a ways, fun throughway in the tennis community.

    • 9/17/20
      Brebeuf Jesuit
      L 0-5.

      We had our underclassman depth in at doubles tonight, and got some good match ups in. Happy with how these young guys are not standing down in the face of stiff competition!

    • 9/21/20
      Lebanon
      W 5-0.

      Martinez/O’Brien found themselves in a nervous match. Another really entertaining match to watch as these two really grew into their 9-7 win tonight. Took them a little OT to do it, but proud of how they buckled down and got tough when the tough get goin! Konvolinka had another good night at #1s winning 8-3. Keep fighting out there kid!

    • 9/22/20
      Heritage Christian
      L 1-3.

      They got us here. It gets dark at Heritage and cools off on their five courts. This means JV guys have to sit for awhile before they get their chance to compete after warm-ups. Additionally, it was an all doubles night to maximize court space after some lengthy two setters at Varsity. Martinez/Fowler had fun at #4d walking away with a 8-4 victory.

    • 9/24/20
      New Palestine
      L 0-5.

      Woah, New Pal’s depth was pretty on par with what they crank out. They are always a very tough and deep team, kudos to their guys tonight. We really didn’t get close to flipping the score cards in our favor, but not for lack of trying, they simply outaged and outplayed us. Each Trojan position it seemed was playing an opponent at least a grade level higher than them. Another one that will be interesting next year, but dang, they have A LOT (EIGHT!!) of juniors gonna be seniors for the 2021 season.

      JV finishes their season off with a win, too! Alex Konvolinka at #1s, Jamie O’Brien at #2s, Charlie Park/Charlie Biggs at #1d, & #3d Gabe Martinez/Alex Fowler got the job done in their final chance to head into the off-season on a winning note! We get better from here. Who will use this time to come back and earn a spot as a big, bad varsity player?!
