Andrew Dougan is seen as he charges toward the net to return a short shot during his straight sets victory over Whiteland’s Kevin Moll in tennis action Monday afternoon. The Pirates defeated Whiteland 5-0.

Greensburg proved to be poor hosts to the visiting Whiteland

Warriors Monday afternoon as they swept the visitors 5-0 in tennis.

Although none of the sets were easy, one-sided victories, the Pirates

were victorious in straight sets in all five matches. In fact the last

match to finish was the match with the most lopsided score. In No. 3

singles, Andrew Dougan defeated Kevin Moll 6-0, 6-2.

The only other match in which a Pirate won a set 6-0 was at No. 1

singles where Greg Dougan defeated Travis Corbin 6-3, 6-0. The

thing about these two wins was that they drew the ire of Coach Al

Jones.

As Jones was returning from his position beyond the south fence of

the tennis courts, he verbally expressed his displeasure.

“It’s not enough that you win, you’ve also got to put forth the effort,” he

said as he collected the basket of balls that would be used for an

extra practice session for the two players.

In the other matches, David Dougan dispatched Jordan Bear at No.

2 singles 6-4, 6-3; Travis Schebler and Elijah Harter defeated

Brandon Chance and Jared Hunt 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 doubles and

Danny Glaser and John Dougan won over Austin Cripps and Roger

Michaels 7-5, 6-3.

In the reserve contest, the Warrior apprentices got a measure of

revenge Whiteland won every match except No. 1 doubles.

Steven Moffett and Craig Schebler both lost 8-1 to Conner Green and

Jacob Cullison, respectively, and Jacob Brandou overcame Mack

Reed 8-4.

In the doubles match, Kurt Schneider and Brock Weber defeated

Matt Middaugh and CJ Smerdel 8-7 in a 7-5 tiebreaker Steve Moffett

teamed with Tyler Wickens for a second doubles match with the

Whiteland duo winning 8-5.

The Pirates continue action when they host Hauser at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday.
