  • The Osage Indians tennis team continued an impressive season by capturing the Class 1 District 8 title for the second consecutive year.
    Osage defeated Marshall — a rematch from last year’s district final in which Osage won — by a final score of 5-2. The win extends Osage’s unbeaten streak to 16-0.
    Entering districts, the team knew Marshall was going to be the toughest dual so far this season. In singles action, seniors Thomas Uhl, Ryan Curran, and Adam Keith won at the top three spots, giving the team best chance of winning the dual. The key match of the day was at number four singles with sophomore Jordan Wilson playing strong for the team winning a tough long battle.
    At the numbers five and six positions, Adam Schoening took his opponent to a deciding third set and Rowman Trowbridge dropped two sets, both in tiebreakers.
    Entering doubles action, the Indians led the Owls 4-2.
    Ryan Curran, and Adam Keith played tough at number two doubles to finish the dual by taking the fifth and deciding match.
    By winning the district title, Osage is one of the first teams to qualify for the championship bracket in Class 1. Sixteen teams — the winners of each district — will play in sectional then state matches to determine the state champion team.
    Osage is one of three teams in Class 1 with an undefeated record — the other two are Warrensburg and Excelsior Springs.
    Osage will play the District 5 champion on May 24 at Country Club Resort and Spa in Lake Ozark. They will likely draw a tough match, as District 5 is comprised of mainly suburban St. Louis private schools including last year’s state champion team from MICDS.
    High school tennis has three state brackets, one for the team competition, one for the singles competition and the third for the doubles competition. Because of that, two rounds of district tournaments are played — the team competition and the singles/doubles competition.
    An invidual can enter the district tournament as a singles player or in a doubles team, but not both.
    The Indians play in the individual district Friday in Marshall. Several players have their sights set on a berth to the state tournament as either a singles player or a doubles team. Collectively, the Indians are a whopping 133-5 in individual matches this year.
