Georgetown College men's and women's tennis wrapped up a great 2017 with the Mid-South Conference banquet honors. Two Tigers earned first-team all-conference, while four more were on second-team. GC also knocked it out in the classroom with nine of the 57 student-athletes honored.
Shae Henry and Ryo Takeda have played much of the top spot for the Tigers in singles and doubles all season and are no surprise as the first-team honorees. This is Henry's third straight year earning all-conference and Takeda's second.
Joining Henry on the women's side, Lauren Fazenbaker, Natalie Fiepke and Madelyn Kauffman were second team. It is Fiepke's second all-conference honor. Tristan Nosek was the other men's representative and is his second time being recognized.
Georgetown College men's and women's tennis teams took care of business on Senior Day. The Tigers honored lone senior Ryan Simms with a pair of 9-0 wins and a bunch of bagels to go around the courts Thursday against Shawnee State University.
Simms and his doubles partner AJ Berk won 8-1 and then Simms rolled 6-0, 6-0 in singles. The Bears men only took one game in the singles and one in the doubles. Cole McCreary won 6-1, 6-0 over Matthew Bryant.
Score is not always indicative to what really happened, one such case is Wednesday afternoon as Georgetown College men's tennis battled No. 9 Campbellsville University. The CU Tigers won 9-0, but nothing was easy about several of the matches.
Ryo Takeda and Tristan Nosek were a few bounces from a win over Chrys Castro and Alejandro Reyes, 8-5. Castro is one half of the second best doubles team in the nation. His ranked partner Brendan Aguilar teamed up with Victor Ahlbeck for an 8-2 win at the two spot.
Cole McCreary and Kaushik Kailash lost 8-4 to Adrian Sabrojo and Mario Belloni.
Ryo Takeda and Tristan Nosek tallied all three points for the Georgetown College men's team against No. 23 Cumberland University. The pair got it started in doubles with an 8-6 win over Axel Lucich and Thiago Lopes. Takeda then defeated Riccardo Ferraris at one singles, 6-2, 6-0, while Nosek took care of Alejandro Rosas Garcia, 6-4, 6-2, at the two singles.
AJ Berk and Ryan Simms lost their doubles to Ramon Puertoals and Ferraris in a tie break, 9-8 (5), or the match would have been closer. However, the visiting Phoenix left Lackey Tennis Center with a 6-3 win Friday.
Georgetown College men's tennis leveled its spring record at .500 with a big neutral site win over Bethel University. The Tigers swept the doubles and then battled fiercely in the one and two single seeds for the five necessary points.
Cole McCreary handled the third singles match with Byran Melbourne in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0. Kaushik Kailash handed Austin Daniel a 6-2, 6-2 setback. Everyone else needed a tiebreaker set.
Ryo Takeda narrowly won set one, 7-5, when Edwyn Rames took control of the match. He won set two 6-2 and held momentum headed to the tiebreak. Takeda righted himself though and won the top singles.
