Kings advance in team play

CLINTON — Clinton swept the singles matches, winning three of them in the third set, to beat Dubuque Senior 6-0 on Saturday in pre-substate boys tennis team competition at Max Lynn Courts.

“I am extremely proud of this team,” Clinton coach David Moore said. “We have dealt with adversity and disappointment at times and have responded by getting better. No coach has a better group of classy young individuals than I do.”

The River Kings moved on and will play Cedar Falls in the substate semifinals next Saturday at Cedar Rapids Kennedy. The winner of that dual will face the winner of the Marion Linn-Mar vs. Cedar Rapids Washington match for the right to advance to the state semifinals.

“We played a tough team and had to battle, but the players really played hard and came through on the big points to advance to the final 16 teams in Iowa,” Clinton coach David Moore said.

Tony Hurlburt had the easiest time for the River Kings, winning 6-0, 6-1 at No. 4 singles. Jacob Kruse (No. 1) and Ryan Schroeder (No. 2) also won in straight sets. Cody Nolan (No. 3), Evan Hood (No. 5) and Vamsi Marla (No. 6) each had to win the third set after splitting the first two. Marla had an especially close match, winning 6-7, 7-6, 7-6.

“Tony played some awesome tennis in the wind,” Moore said. “Ryan and Jacob were solid, and Evan, Vamsi and Cody played clutch third sets.”

Camanche girls ousted

CAMANCHE — Defending Class 1A team state champion Camanche was knocked off Saturday in the first round of girls team regional play. Davenport Assumption won the first two doubles matches to clinch a 5-3 victory against the Indians, avenging a recent loss.

The Knights then added a 5-0 victory against Maquoketa to advance to next Saturday’s regional semifinals against Marion.

Assumption, which used a strong second day in a bid to win the Mississippi Athletic Conference title last week before taking third, got a key win at No. 1 singles. Haley Resnick defeated 2012 Class 1A state runner-up Kylie Vogel 7-5, 7-5.
