FREMONT – The Fremont Ross boys tennis team has enjoyed a nice 24-span. Not only have the Little Giants won a pair of matches to lift their record over .500, they also and gave coach Lisa Wolfe a personal milestone.
Ross’ 3-2 victory over Tiffin Columbian on Monday gave Wolfe her 100th victory as coach of the boys team. The Little Giants then followed that victory with a near-perfect performance over Whitmer Tuesday, winning its first TRAC match of the season and nearly every game along the way in a 5-0 sweep.
The victory against Tiffin Columbian saw the Little Giants sweep the singles matches, two wins coming from dominant performances from Lucas Cronin and Ethan Moyer, then clinching the match with a three-set victory at No. 3 singles by Andrew Miller.
“The singles were definitely the heroes,” Wolfe said. “Lucas with his game of patience, Ethan probably played the best tennis I’ve seen him play – basically error-free the first set. And then there’s Drew, coming off an illness, he was determined to win his match, always staying positive, not even knowing he was the point we needed to win the match.”
Tuesday night, opening TRAC league play, the Little Giants cruised easily over the Panthers. Ross won all but one set by a 6-0 score, with only No. 3 singles dropping two games.
As for Wolfe, who scored her 100th victory on Monday, Tuesday night’s began her climb toward 200 – though she had little concern about her own record.
“I’m not in it for the hoopla – just enjoy coaching and watching the athletes produce individual wins,” she said. “Sometimes producing three points for a team win.”
