"I thought we would do well, but I never expected to win this tournament," said Monett Tennis Coach Bob Crain. "The boys really played gutsy tennis today. I am very proud of them. I think this is the first time we have won our own tournament."
The Cubs scored 23.5 points to take top honors in the competition. Mt. Vernon finished second with 21.5, and Webb City was third with 20 team points.
In singles action, Abraham Mejia finished in third place, and Andres DeLeon took fifth. Mejia scored a huge upset in the tournament's second round, defeating the number one seed from Carthage 9-8.
In doubles play, Tim Trout and Caleb McCurry took first place, and Alex Hall and Shane George finished in third.
"I hope we can continue this momentum," said Crain. "I also want to thank Daryl Bradley for all of his help."
The tennis Cubs will be in action today at Greenwood in Springfield. Matches are set to begin at 4:30 p.m.
