The Mt. Vernon boys’ tennis team swept Anderson at home Wednesday to move to 5-2 on the season.
Bryce Bobb (No. 1 singles), Ben Bobb (No. 2 singles) and Evan Smith/Matt Hays (No. 2 doubles) won their matches 6-0, 6-0.
Nick Pham (No. 3 singles) and Chandler Hines/Andrew Noble (No.1 doubles) also prevailed in straight sets.
“We were like the hunter searching for the prized possession … the bagel. We found a plentiful bounty last night of six sets of bagels,” MV coach Gabe Muterspaugh said of the “0” sets won by the Indians (also known as a bagel). “Some players use cream cheese on theirs, some nacho cheese. As a coach, I am not picky.”
MV is at the Richmond Invitational Saturday.
