Kings win 5 titles, team crown

MUSCATINE — Clinton won three titles in singles and two in doubles Saturday on its way to winning the team championship of the Kiser Invitational boys tennis tournament at Muscatine High School.

Ryan Schroeder (No. 1), Jacob Kruse (No. 2) and Vamsi Marla (No. 6) captured singles crowns for the River Kings, while Schroeder and Kruse combined to win at No. 1 doubles and Evan Hood and Rohan Aggarwal won at No. 3 doubles.

The River Kings earned 20 points to finish three ahead of runner-up Pleasant Valley in the team scoring.

“Not everybody played as well as they were capable, but everyone battled, and our team was able to outdistance both Pleasant Valley and (Davenport) Assumption for the title,” Clinton coach David Moore said. “Ryan Schroeder, Jacob Kruse and Vamsi Marla played well all day, and although Rohan Aggarwal and Evan Hood were struggling, they reached deep and pulled out the No. 3 doubles title.”

Tony Hurlburt added a second-place finish at No. 4 singles for the River Kings.

“I believe we can get significantly better once we can get outside in a regular basis,” Moore said. “Hopefully, that will be soon.”

Camanche scored one point in the tournament and was led by Seth Boysen, who reached the semifinals at No. 1 singles.
