Rolla's top doubles team saw their season come to an end on Monday, May 13, as the pair took part in Sectionals.
The duo of Pranal Madria and Joel Schott faced off against Joseph Hammerly and Matthew Decker of Lee's Summit North, falling 4-6, 2-6. Lee's Summit North won both of the doubles matches at the Sectional.
Head coach Joe Schisler appreciated the way Madria and Schott carried themselves both on and off the court this season, as they provided key leadership to the Rolla tennis team.
"This team was committed to improvement and grew so much throughout the season," said coach Schisler. "They did a fantastic job of adapting the advice of Coach Barth to fit their abilities and style. More importantly, I had coaches from many schools comment on their poise, sportsmanship, quick thinking and good hands. Their team always knew they were totally committed, and even in the district final, they created chances to win sets by shaking off the past and moving on to the next point. No one ever felt like they could let their guard down when playing this team."
