From MSHS Boys Tennis Head Coach, Karl Thomsen:

  • “I was really happy with the way our kids played today.  I thought our Ezra Pickard and Tristan Potila (#3 doubles) did a great job competing in their first varsity match.  At #4 doubles, Toby Camilli had his serve rolling today and Nathan Barsch’s net game was extremely solid.  As a high school tennis fan, I was really excited about the strong athletic line-up Ishpeming had.  Talking to their coach, they haven’t had a bunch of time on the courts yet this year, but their future is bright with the athletes they have playing.”
