White River boys tennis preview

After leading the Hornet program to new heights a season ago, veteran coach Jeff Hinkle is looking for even better things from this year’s experienced group.

In 2012, White River had two singles players and one doubles team advance to district play. Hinkle said it was the first time in recent memory the Hornets have enjoyed postseason play.

Heading into this season, Hinkle is looking at an all-senior varsity roster.

Drew Maras is back for a third season at No. 1 singles and David Connelly has moved from the doubles ranks to claim the No. 2 singles slot.

In doubles, Travis Meyers and Alex Anastasi head into the season as the No. 1 entry, having played at No. 2 last year. New to the second doubles slot are Hunter Bruckbauer and Dane Barber, up from No. 3 last year. Taking the third doubles position are Brandon Garvin and Orion Rossich, who played junior varsity tennis in 2012.

The team opened the season with a road match Monday at Franklin Pierce and a home contest Tuesday against Enumclaw.
