Tennis

Beavercreek shuts out Fairborn

FAIRBORN — The Fairborn Boy’s tennis team wrapped up their home season on Thursday night playing host to Greene County and Greater Western Ohio Conference foe Beavercreek. As always, the Skyhawks played hard and showed improvement, but still fell 5-0 to their guests.

First singles was the match of the night as Fairborn’s Nhat Mai faced off against Vinuoh Eukunda. Mai won a first set tie-breaker 7-6, but Eukunda came back and won a hard-fought 6-4 second set. Due to the weather and the overall outcome having already being decided, the two played a 10-point tie-breaker to determine the winner. In a 10-8 decision, Eukunda pulled out the win.

Alex Cao played Brian Gscheiole at no. 2 singles and dropped a 2-6, 1-6 decision.

Caleb Arthur was out again due to injury so the no. 3 singles spot went by default to the Beavers.

First doubles saw Tyler Fillback and Robert Floyd defeated by Curtis Guthrie and Manau Beniwal 0-6 and 0-6. Meanwhile, Johnny Ngo and Austin Lewis fell 2-6 and 0-6 to Hari Parimanaran and Jacob Jones.

With the home portion of the schedule complete for Fairborn, they now hit the road for their final two matches of the season. The Skyhawks travel to New Carlisle Tecumseh on Monday, then to Xenia (Tuesday), on the Greene County Fairgrounds courts, to wrap up GWOC South and regular season play.
