Raiders top Cavaliers in boys tennis


St. Thomas More and No. 3-ranked Rapid City Stevens met in boys tennis action at Sioux Park today.

We start things off with No. 1 singles action and St. Thomas More's Nick Lust taking on Stevens' Jamison Pfingston and it looks like Pfingston has an easy smash for the point here but Lust manages to somehow return it to the deep corner and a surprised Pfingston is unable to return it.

Pfingston bounces back on the next point with a rocket of a serve that Lust can't return.

Over to No. 2 singles and Stevens' Jackson Ellis gets Will Raymond on the run with a big forehand and then pulls out the touch for the point as he won 7-5, 2-6, 10-8.

Back to Lust and Pfingston and Lust puts Pfingston in a tough spot with the backhand here and takes advantage with a big overhead slam but Pfingston went on to win this one 6-3, 4-6, 10-8

And Stevens goes to 6-0 on the year in duals with the 9-0 win.
