- On Saturday, the boys tennis team competed in the Wayland Quad.  After a nice warm up of pushing squeegees around wet courts, the team played hours of brilliant and exciting tennis.  Caleb Borton took home a win in an epic first round, playing for 93 minutes and finding ways to stay focused during long rallies.  The first doubles team of Joe Goggins and Hayden Long lost a close match.  Their serves and forehands were on-point, but Plainwell managed to just edge them out. The second doubles team of Evan Porter and Anderson Forell found themselves in many long rallies that were thrilling to watch. And singles players Heath Hays and Keegan Lindsey left no corner of the courts uncovered, with Keegan almost winning his match against Plainwell.  Down 5-0, Keegan fought back to a tie at 7-7, but wasn't able to get that final game. Great job Saxons!
