Tennis team wins home opener
Ryan Summerlin April 5, 2013
After starting the season with three straight road matches, the Park City High School boys’ tennis team was ready to play at home for once.
The Miners got that opportunity on Tuesday afternoon at the PC MARC against Grantsville.
They made the most of it, winning the match 3-2.
Senior Matt Groy, who won his match against Grantsville’s No. 1 player, said it was nice to have local support.
"Tennis is usually not supported as well as some other sports," he said. "So that was really nice to see some of the people from our high school come out in support."
Groy got off to slow starts in both of his sets, but battled back to earn the victory in each.
"Such is tennis," he said. "You’ve just got to figure out what’s going on in both sets. Both sets are going to be different because they’re going to figure out your weaknesses and you’ve got to figure out the weaknesses of your opponent."
He said nerves played a part in the slow starts, but he’s happy with the way he rebounded.
"I just had to relax, settle back into it and figure out a way to win."
The Miners also defeated Morgan 3-2 in a match at Morgan on Thursday afternoon. They’ll be back in action at home on Tuesday against Wasatch. The match starts at 3:30 p.m. at the PC MARC.
