The Ankeny Centennial boys’ tennis team set a school record for most wins in a season on Thursday.
The Jaguars posted a 10-1 victory at Mason City to improve to 10-1 on the season. The previous record of nine wins was set in 2016 and equaled last year.
“Mason City has a pretty strong 1 and 2 (singles players) and 1 doubles team, but Will (Blevins) and Ryan (Lofgren) both won pretty handily for us,” said Centennial coach Tami Lewton. “Ryan and Samson (Densmore) played together at 1 doubles, which was the only match that we lost. They just started a bit slow, but were coming on strong in the second set.”
Centennial will host Urbandale on Friday. The Jaguars can clinch the outright CIML Central Conference title with a win.
