Mount Vernon tennis coach Jeff Jarosz paired up four of his best players into two strong doubles teams. The Jackets, however, could not squeeze a win from their three singles players and lost to Olentangy, 3-2, in Ohio Captial Conference tennis action on Thursday.

The Jackets’ first doubles team of Nate Nestor and Kishan Patel defeated Olentangy’s Logan Smith and Zoheb Memon in straight sets, 6-2, 7-6. They won the second set on a dramatic 13-11 tiebreaker that saw Nestor and Patel go to double match point a couple of times before claiming victory.

“It felt really great,” said Patel. “I was really happy. We should have been better, but it’s fine, we won. We have played together three times and we have won all our games so far.”

Some quick net play on the part of Nestor was the deciding factor, as he was able to able to cross up Smith and Memon on the final rallies of the match.
