Finishing in the runner-up spot last spring, Holley will be looking to fill four holes in the starting lineup in order to again compete for top honors in the Genesee Region League tennis title race.

The veteran trio of senior Corey Winter, junior Ian Penders and sophomore Brady Smith return to the starting lineup to lead the way for the Holley netters.

“We lost a ton,” said Coach John Grillo of his graduation losses which leaves holes at second and third singles and first doubles. “We want to capitalize on the experience we have,” he added.

The Hawks are looking to the foursome of seniors David Sutton, Jake McAllister, Brendon Moore and sophomore Gabe Mendoza to help fill those holes.

The Hawks also return senior Emily Skehan along with juniors John Rusin and Ben Scott.
