Holland High School Boys Varsity Tennis finishes 3rd place at Regional Tournament
The Holland Boys Varsity Tennis team traveled to Forest Hills Northern for the regional tournament today. The Dutch had a strong showing, with all flights advancing to the quarterfinals. Six of the eight flights would then move onto the semifinal round.
Advancing to the finals at their respective flights were Sean O'Keefe (#2 singles) and Neil VanFaasen (#3 singles). Holland finished with 16 points, one point shy of qualifying for the Division 2 State Tournament. "It's difficult to find words adequate enough to describe this team," said Holland coach Kyle Kreps. "They have been a terrific group to coach and it was a great season. We were right in the mix today and each member on the team played a part in us getting 16 points. It is tough knowing how close we were to moving on, but it is comforting knowing that everyone left it all out on the court today. The guys can hold their heads high and be proud of their success".
Holland's 16 points at the regional tournament are the most points they have scored since the 2005 season.
