Antigo's netmen downed at sectionals
space
An impressive season came to an unfortunate end for the Antigo High School boys tennis team Thursday.

Competing at the WIAA sectional meet in Green Bay, all three Red Robin challengers — the No. 1 doubles team of Colin Bastle and Kyle West and No. 1 singles player Brett Haakenson — were all eliminated in the first round. 

In the tandems, the Bastle-West contingent faced off against a strong Ashwaubenon duo, Anders Wikum and Brad Tschoeke.

“They were on fire,” Antigo Coach Dave Zalewski said of the competition.  “The boys played  this team earlier in the season and lost in a close three-setter.  But today, Ashwaubenon’s team was better and sent our team packing, beating them 6-1, 6-2. 

“These two have been playing together now for four straight years and have amassed a fantastic win/loss record (14-6),” the coach added. “Though they didn't make it to state, they still won conference and had a great final season.”

Haakenson came a few strokes short of moving on in the number one position. 

Paired against Ashwaubenon’s Sam Wisneski, another familiar challenger, he began the match a bit tense, falling behind in a three quick games. After settling in and starting to relax, he split the next six games, losing 3-6.

He came out of the gates strong in the second set, pulling ahead 5-2, before losing the set in a tie-breaker to miss his shot at a state berth.

He finished the year with a 13-7 record.

“Brett has been one of the best players I have had the opportunity to coach,” Zalewski said. “This season he developed his skills and stood toe to toe with some of the better players around.  He won Great Northern Conference Player of the Year and made it to sectionals.  It has been a great high school career for him.”
