After having their 2020 season cut short due to Covid-19, the thrill of victory was extra sweet for the members of the Dunham boys tennis team who served up enough points to claim the 2021 Division IV state title on Friday.
Congratulations to Cade Cloud ’22, Michael Dudley ’22, Ashton DuPont ’24, Evan Gleason ’22, Jon Melara ’21, Jordi Melara ’21, Lethan Nguyen ’21, Daniel Petty '21, and coaches Chad Myers ’97 and Ronnie Walters on the team’s third consecutive state win since 2018.
And, as if one state trophy wasn’t enough, the team returned to campus with two more in tow after Michael Dudley won the state singles title, and Evan Gleason and Lethan Nguyen teamed up to claim the doubles title.
In an interview with The Advocate, Coach Myers said, “It was a really great team effort. But the last two times we won without winning either the singles or the doubles tournament. I challenged them to do that, and they got it done.”
