The MMHS Boys Tennis Team won the Championship Title at the St. George Invitational held March 27-28. The Golden Eagles won the title last year, too, but never in the 5 years going to the tournament has the team finished with four 1st place results and one 2nd place in an overwhelming victory. After defeating three teams the first day, Varsity 1st singles Andrew Blonquist lead the team by beating Dixie 9-7 in a tough battle and went on to beat Spanish Fork in straight sets. 2nd Singles Eric Whiting beat Spanish Fork easily and went on to a rematch victory against Orem 7-6,6-1. 3rd Singles Brigham Perry battled three long sets 6-0, 6-7, 6-3 to defeat Desert Hills as did 1st Doubles team (Senior) Nam Luu and (Freshman) Danny Blonquist. 2nd doubles team Joe Phelps/Austin Edwards played great tennis and beat Spanish Fork quickly but went on to their first loss against Desert Hills in the finals. The team won 23 out of 25 matches in a two day tournament. Congratulations on a GREAT win!
