Mounts fall to Warwick in boys tennis opener
Those two not only occupied the top two slots in the lineup but also were the team’s first doubles pairing.
With not a senior in the lineup, and minus Murcia and Fritz, a youthful Mounts’ team opened the season Tuesday afternoon, hosting a veteran Warwick squad in cool conditions at the Ephrata Middle School.
As expected, Ephrata experienced some growing pains against the Warriors, who swept singles play and took two out of three in doubles to cruise to a 6-1 win over the Mounts.
Ephrata’s lone victory of the day came at number three doubles where Mario Murcia and Travis Groff combined for an 8-4 win over Nate Deimler and Brian Dieterle.
In singles, Ephrata’s number one Lukas Olson was defeated by one of the top contenders for the league singles title in Tony Deimler, who earned a 6-0, 6-0 decision. Warwick’s Luke Newberry also defeated Ephrata’s #2 player, Bob Lowrie, 6-0, 6-0, while Mounts’ three-man Christian Miles was upended by Matt Pennypacker in a 6-1, 6-0 decision.
In the other two doubles matches, Olson and Miles were defeated by Tony Deimler and Newberry at one, and the Ephrata tandem of Lowrie and Mantsevich also fell at two to Warwick’s Pennypacker and Setlock.
Ephrata has a busy slate coming up with matches Thursday (home vs. CV), Friday (home vs. Garden Spot), and next Tuesday on the road at Lebanon.
