Glover remains undefeated

May 3, 2000

The BHS Boys tennis team traveled to Shawnee Mission Park to compete in the Gardner-Edgerton Invitational Saturday.

Senior Blake Glover kept his undefeated season alive by going 3-0, winning 8-0, 8-0, 8-2. After Saturday, Glover's record is now up to 20-0.

"I'm in the zone right now. When you're in the zone, you don't think about anything," Glover said. "This is the best tennis I have played in my four years at Baldwin High."

Senior Adam Guss returned from a football injury to compete in his first singles match of the season. He placed second in No. 2 singles action.

"I'm happy to be back," Guss said. "I am looking forward to the rest of the season."

In No. 1 doubles, sophomore Jeff Wagner and freshman Eric Jorgensen went 0-3.

"Jeff and Eric struggled. I threw them into No. 1 doubles because of absences caused by state band," said coach Troy Webb.

Sophomores Hans Broers and Corey Venable placed fifth in No. 2 doubles competition.

The team is starting to gel and looking forward to the upcoming Class 4A Regional competition.

"They are starting to get it together; Guss has a legitimate chance at going to state," Webb said.

Next action for the squad is the DeSoto Invitational on Saturday.
