August Dressel

August Dressel defeated Superior’s Dylan Urbaniak 7-6, 4-6, 10-6 at No. 3 singles.

The Osceola boys tennis team earned a dual win 7-0 over Superior May 12. 

“What a week of tennis!” said Osceola coach Beth Friedrichsen. “They all played a bunch of tennis, which I always say is the best way to get better at tennis, so that was a positive thing.”

Three matches went to three sets. Gavin Almlie defeated Brodie Raygor 3-6, 6-4, 10-6 at No. 1 singles, while August Dressel defeated Dylan Urbaniak 7-6, 4-6, 10-6 at No. 3 singles. Griffin DeRosier and Wyatt Jordan took care of Keyten DeGraef and Adrian Sakuray, 4-6, 7-5, 13-11 at No. 3 doubles. 

Carson Holman beat Jordan Hoffman 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2 singles, while Aidan Gallagher beat Ryan Williams, Jr., 6-4, 6-3 at No. 4 singles. Ethan Landgreen and Sampson Federation beat Vinnie Theisen and Allen Nelson, 6-4, 6-1 at No. 1 doubles. 

The Chieftains then lost to Baldwin-Woodville 6-1 the same day with Carson Holman earning the only Osceola point at No. 2 singles. He defeated Connor Barnett 6-7, 6-4, 10-6. Gavin Almlie lost a three-set match to Michael Krinke at No. 1 singles, 6-2, 6-7, 10-7. 

“They all played well and are hopefully finding some confidence in their games as we enter the tournament portion of our season next week at the Middle Border  Conference tournament,” Friedrichsen said. “We are strong at No. 1 and No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles, we have yet to make some serious decisions about the rest of the positions that are open, luckily we have the players out there to choose from.” 

Osceola started the week with a 7-0 loss to Regis May 10. 

The closest match came at No. 2 doubles when Nash Cullinan and Alessio Komro defeated Owen and Mason Jordan, 6-2, 6-7, 10-8. IK Kanu beat Wyatt Jordan at No. 4 singles, 6-2, 6-4.
