FIGHTING THE WIND

It was a blustery spring day Wednesday, but the Chambersburg boys tennis team had more to battle than just the wind.

There was also the matter of the Trojans being without their No. 2 player, and the fact that they were playing a fine team - non-league opponent Lower Dauphin.

And the Falcons prevailed easily, giving up only four games in a 5-0 victory at Norlo Park, handing the Trojans (2-1) their first defeat.

Chambersburg's Jay Padalia won one game vs. Josh Carl at No. 1 singles. Beck Wiles took a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 2 over Andrew Mooney, who had moved up one spot in the order, while No. 3 Aaron Muldowney also captured a single game vs. LD's Reed Morris.

At No. 1 doubles, the Trojans' Josh and Danny Muldowney also managed to score a single point.

EVENT OF THE DAY

The James Buchanan boys tennis team continued its early-season success by edging East Pennsboro 3-2 Wednesday in a key Mid Penn Colonial Division match on the road.

Isaac Shenton took a 7-5, 7-5 win at No. 2 singles, and Hunter Sowers followed with a 6-1, 6-4 win at No. 3. The clinncher came at No. 1 doubles, when JB's Micah Wise and Josh Summers scrapped for a 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory over the Panthers.

The Rockets raised their record to 6-0 (3-0 MPC).
