Brief: Robinson Tennis Wins

The Robinson Rams shut out the Oakton Cougars on the home courts on Thursday. Freshman Aaron Christian at No. 3 ran away with his match, winning 10-1. Jacob Schreiman played well at No. 6, using numerous passing shots to win 10-2. David Smiley won easily at No. 4, 10-4. Seniors Tim Ferrell and Michael Cable also won, 10-5 and 10-4, respectively. The most competitive match was at No. 5 where Dillon Meyer fell behind 5-2 but staged a big comeback to win, 10-7. His Oakton opponent started out blazing hot. He took Dillon's high bouncing forehands early and controlled the points, hardly missing on his forehand. However, Meyer kept his focus and gradually turned the tide. The Cougar lost his focus and faded out of the match. That completed the singles shutout.

Ferrell and Christian teamed up to win 8-2 as did Amit Gupta and Meyer. Stephen Paul and Dayton Coupland pulled out the third doubles, 8-6.
