The Fleetwood Boys’ Tennis team is preparing for their new season to get under way. The team is hopeful that they can use their depth to win a lot of matches this season.

“We’re slightly better than the average team due to the depth of our lineups,” senior Justin Kramer said.

The team is led by their “number one,” Matt Dybowski, and they are also strong throughout their starting nine lineup.

At six foot three inches, Dybowski is an imposing figure to play against. In only his second year of playing tennis, he is happy to be a captain of the team alongside Nico Touch, who has played four years.

“Tennis gives me an opportunity to compete and hang out with my friends,” Dybowski said.

Last season, the team received an infusion of new talent playing for the first time. Then juniors Dybowski, Justin Kramer, Lucas Strange, and Owen Breisch joined the team, along with then sophomore Andrew Slusser. These new players played a variety of sports, all but Dybowski play soccer, and he has played basketball his entire life.

This addition of athleticism helped the team become a difficult group to beat. Players one through nine are either well-experienced players like seniors Nico Touch or Nick Miller, or they are athletic newcomers.

“The team is solid because we have good depth throughout our lineup,” Dybowski said.

The team has also shared the sentiment of having good chemistry. They have fun playing tennis, which translates to a good team atmosphere and success. This chemistry helps contribute to successful doubles tandems as well.

In addition to singles matches, each meet contains doubles. The team’s exceptional chemistry helps players like Slusser and Dybowski enjoy playing doubles together and succeed.

Fleetwood’s boys tennis team is using their athleticism and team chemistry to put together a successful season.
