LOUISVILLE â€” The dynastic Oak Hill Netters returned to the action with a revamped look despite some old faces on the tennis courts in District 2-AA.
After an 8-1 loss to Class-AAA power Heritage Academy in the season opener, the Raiders downed the Winston Patriots in team match play, 6-3, in a District 2-AA opener for both teams Wednesday afternoon.
â€śItâ€™s a little both new and old faces, but we revamped this season,â€ť Oak Hill Head Coach Brian Middleton said. â€śLast year, we had a great and big senior class. But with that, you have to pay a price.
â€śWe are rebuilding this season," Middleton added. "I am glad of the young kids coming out to play for us.â€ť
In singles action, Oak Hill junior John Willis Stevens took over the No. 1 singles position for the Raiders. Stevens made quick work of Winstonâ€™s Coly Duty with a straight set victory (6-2, 6-4).
Stevens was the MAIS Class-AA state runner-up as the Raiderâ€™s No. 2 Singles player during the 2013 season.
Will Kelly helped the Raiders sweep the Boysâ€™ Singles matches with his victory (6-3, 6-3) over Brandon Rogers.
