On May 4, 2010, the Maple Mountain boys tennis team performed well at the region tournament. The JV team was phenomenal and took 1st place over all. Calder Groberg, 1st JV singles, did an awesome job hitting his way to victory taking first place. The only freshman on the team Matt Chandler, 2nd JV singles,  took first with his consistent serve and ground stroke game. Nate Hawks, 3rd JV singles, also played very hard and well taking 2nd place. We had three doubles teams in the tournament; they all played to the best of their abilities. Cameron Spilker and Justin Beary, 1st JV doubles, had a very fastidious serve and volley game. They volleyed their way to victory taking 1st place; they also remain undefeated for the season. Braden George and Justin“Kansas” Slavens, 2nd JV, aced their way to 1st place. “Kansas” remains undefeated for the season. Nick H. Taylor and David Smith, 3rd JV doubles, had a valiant fight for 3rd place.
Our 1st varsity singles, Chirs Wiscombe, took third place with his double handled racquet. Second varsity singles, Rustin Porter hit his way to 2nd place. Hunter Hullinger, our 3rd varsity singles took 2nd place as well.   During the season, our doubles teams have been switched up quite a bit due to injuries, etc.  Nick W. Taylor and Jordon Argyle, 1st varsity doubles, volleyed their way to 3rd place. Blanie Blonquist and Trevor Morey, 2nd varsity doubles, sliced their way to 2nd place. We are very proud of our tennis team, our JV is amazing and our Varsity played like champions.   Good luck tennis team at state!
