SD tennis players vie for District VIII titles

(May 17, 2013) Eight tennis players are representing Stephen Decatur during the District VIII tournament, which was scheduled to kick off Thursday in Cambridge.

Senior Madison Pope is competing in girls’ singles action. Tori Whigham has partnered with fellow senior Lexi Ashton for doubles.

Seniors Emmalee Murrell and Tim VanVonno have teamed up to battle for the mixed doubles title.

Junior John Niedfeldt is taking the court in boys’ singles competition.

Seniors Joe Iacona and Jon Hastings are playing together to capture the doubles trophy.

Steve Berquist and Jamie Greenwood, coaches of the Seahawks boys’ and girls’ teams respectively, said prior to the tournament that they expected their players to face some stiff competition.

“The best players from every team will be competing. If you can win a match up there you’re doing well,” Berquist said.

Added Greenwood, “There are some really good teams from the north that we will see for the first time and that is where I become concerned. But we have practiced hard and will do our best to be prepared for whomever is across the net.”
