Robins split home tennis meets, sit second in GNC
space
The Antigo boys' tennis team once again hosted two Great Northern Conference teams at the Elleson courts Monday in order to squeeze in all of its conference matches before the GNC championship meet this Saturday.

Teams from both Newman Catholic High School and Rhinelander High School traveled to Antigo to try to take down the Robins who are currently sitting at second-place in the conference standings.

Antigo began the afternoon by taking on Newman.  Newman was unable to field a full roster, forfeiting the number three doubles match, but the Robins had no trouble beating out the rest of the opposing team, beating Newman with a final score of 7-0, and with each match lasting no longer than two sets.

First, at number three singles, Sam Bretl was the only Antigo player to shut out his opponent entirely, winning 6-0, 6-0 in two sets.  Playing number four singles, Frank McKenna defeated Ashton Butts of Newman with consistency, winning 6-1 in both sets.

Toward the top of the roster, Brody Bunnell and Joe Bartletti were able to beat their opponents with scores of 6-0, 6-1, while Garrett Husnick at number one singles beat out Zongcha Lo 6-1, 6-2.

Lastly, Simon McPhail came back in the first set of the number two singles match to win 6-4, but didn't have quite as hard of a time winning the second set, finishing 6-0.  Brett Farmer and Calvin Jansen took down their rivals at number two doubles in two sets as well with final scores of 6-1 in both.

After beating Newman 7-0, Antigo was up against rival Rhinelander next, which was the Robins' only loss through the first round of conference play.  Head coach Dave Zalewski changed up the roster another time to match up against the Hodags, looking for the best possible scenario to come out victorious.

This strategy, however, was not enough.  Antigo lost the match 5-2 to Rhinelander, but the team was still able to put up a good fight and did not lose hope until the match was finished.

Bartletti and Husnick were the only to win for the Robins against Rhinelander.  Bartletti won his number two singles match 6-0, 6-4, while Husnick took his opponent down in two sets as well, winning the first in a tiebreaker with a score of 11-9, and then winning the second set as well 6-2.

At number one singles, Brody Bunnell put up a very intense fight, battling Rhinelander's Jacob Weddle to the very end.  Bunnell won the second set with a score of 6-1, but it was not enough, as Weddle had already won the first set 6-4, and continued to win the final set 6-1.

Lastly, for singles, Jared McFarlane lost his match at number four in two sets 3-6, 4-6.

On the doubles side, number one pairing Jansen and Farmer fell to their opponents in two quick sets 6-2, 6-0.

Both of Antigo's other doubles team lost their matches as well.  Sam Bretl and Simon McPhail played at number two doubles and lost in two sets, 2-6, 4-6, while number three doubles, Jerome Jones and Ben Morris, lost their match as well, 6-4, 6-1.

The Robins are scheduled to play next tonight in Medford to wrap up their conference schedule, as they will be traveling to Lakeland Union High School in Minocqua on Saturday, May 11 for the Great Northern Conference tournament with competition beginning at 9 a.m.
