WHITEFISH BAY BOYS TENNIS
The Blue Dukes will be young but experienced this season.
"Overall tryouts have been competitive and early season level of play generally pretty good," said coach Phil Kelbe. "We missed a week with spring break, and we have had a couple injuries and illness to deal with; and of course, the weather set us back a little last week.
"If we can everyone healthy and get into a more regular practice routine, we should be all right. Nicolet and Homestead will be the teams to beat in what will be the last year of the North Shore Conference as we know it."
Singles players for the Blue Dukes include junior state tourney qualifier Patrick Conta and sophomores Chris Hastings, Jack Gonzales, Grey Wadedekin, and Marcus Ellinas. Kelbe said aside from Conta at the top spot, the other singles positions have not been formalized yet.
Doubles players include senior Ben Rackovan and junior Jack Lyons, sophomore Jacob Gurican and freshman Thomas Gonzales; seniors Will Korbitz and Toyo Borgmann; and juniors Jack Styler and Ben Huegel.
