2021 SECTIONAL AND REGIONAL CHAMPS!
On Monday the Indians faced off against a tough gritty Bluffton Tigers team. The matches started off well for the Indians in all three singles matches with each taking the first set handley. Both doubles had a rough time adjusting to the varsity lineup as each of those four players had little to no experience at the varsity level. Both doubles then went on to drop the match with the Indians in a hole down 0-2. As doubles wrapped each of the three singles went into a third set. I as the coach had to pull all three aside and tried to instill the confidence back into my players for them to have the will to go out and win. To say the least we ended up winning the match 3-2 and I as a coach was proud of the resilience of my team throughout the whole match. Next match Thursday against Kokomo.

2022 CIC Outlook
Alexandria: Graduated only 1 player but he was their top player from 2021 ( Brayden Bates). Will return two 2021 honorable mention players. Is a year away from contending for the CIC crown but should be near the top.
Blackford: Return top 5 players from 2021 team but will again be a step behind the top teams in the CIC. Let’s hope their numbers will be up from last year and they can start realizing their potential.
Elwood: Again this year (like last year), Elwood is returning at least six varsity players and should be led by All-CIC 1st team player, Owen Hinchman. Beau Brandon, All-CIC Honorable Mention in 2021, will help him lead Elwood to battle for a top tier team in the CIC.
Frankton: Graduated 4 of top 7 from last year’s team. Will be led by the Barr brothers, who return from playing #1 doubles on the 2021 squad and were named to the CIC Honorable Mention Team. Will need this year of experience to move back into the top part of the conference.
Madison Grant: Return 3 players All-CIC 1st team players from from the 2021 team. Top 5 players are juniors in 2022 so will the team to beat for a couple of years. MG should be in contention for the CIC title with Olemiss.
Mississinewa: Even though Olemiss graduated their top 5 players from last year’s semi-state team, they will return Garrett Spencer and Kannen Smith and a nice collection of young players. Look for the Indians to surprise a few teams and push MG for the CIC crown.
With the graduation of 8 of the top 10 players from the 2021 CIC 1st Team and 4 of 11 Honorable Mention players, there will be a lot of new names emerging in the CIC in 2022. Which newbie will prove to most valuable for their school’s team?
