Bellefontaine netters fall to Urbana


Bellefontaine’s boys tennis team was unable to dent the scoreboard Thursday as visiting Urbana took a 5-0 decision over the Chiefs in a Central Buckeye Conference match.

The Chiefs fall to 0-15 overall and 0-13 in the CBC.

Coming the closest to getting a win for the Chiefs was Tyler Frantz at second singles. He pushed Urbana’s Barnaby Ofori to three sets, but Ofori pulled out a 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 victory.

“Tyler did a nice job for us,” said Stein. “It was 4-4 in the third set, but (Ofori) was able to win those last two games.”

The Hillclimbers’ Wayne Wildman won 6-0, 6-0 over Rohan Prasad at first singles and Urbana’s Jacob Circle prevailed 7-6, 6-1 over Logan Raney at third singles.

Urbana dominated the doubles action. Jason Holmes and Steven Thiel won 6-0, 6-0 over the Chiefs’ Patrick Tarasiewicz and Jacob Campbell at first doubles and Bellefontaine’s Daniel Evilsizor and Kevin Thiel won 6-1, 6-1 over Adam Verbsky and Dean Smith at second doubles.

In reserve doubles play, Bellefontaine’s John Beach and Josh Kreutzer lost 8-2 and Isaiah Brady and Michael Coakley fell 8-0.

Bellefontaine is back in action Monday at Kenton Ridge.
