LAST SEASON: 12-9, 4-3 HHC
Hancock County Tournament runner-up; sectional champions; lost to Lawrence North in regional
PROJECTED LINEUP (with position, player, grade):
No. 1 singles — Bryce Bobb (12)
No. 2 singles — Ben Bobb (11)
No. 3 singles — Grant Williams (10)
No. 1 doubles — Andrew Noble (12)/Chandler Hines (12)
No. 2 doubles — Mark Alvarado (10)/Brendon Ware (9)
Head coach: Gabe Muterspaugh (17th season)
Outlook: It’s all about the Bobbs this season, as brothers Bryce and Ben are the only Marauders with significant varsity experience returning from the 2011 sectional-championship team.
All-Hoosier Heritage Conference selection Kendall Ryan (No. 2 singles), Reid Eberhard (No. 3) and the No. 1 doubles team of Ben Bobb and Corey Beck delivered sectional victories in the Marauders’ 3-2 semifinal win over New Palestine last season, but Ryan and Eberhard have graduated, and Beck, a senior this year, suffered a knee injury the first day of practice and is likely out of action until at least the Hancock County Tournament on Sept. 8, according to MV coach Gabe Muterspaugh.
