Norwalk Warriors Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District I Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, June 12, 2014 Norwalk Boys State Tennis The NOrwalk boys duo of Austin LaVelle and Grant Wright traveled to.Cedar Rapids for the 2A Iowa High School Tennis Tourney. Last year, LaVelle and Wright played inthe 1A field at Waterloo and came away with a 5th place medal. This year the boys opened their tournament round facing Grant Thompson/Jason Peterson from Ankeny Centennial. The boys dropped the first set 4-G but came back and played very well in the 2nd and 3rd, winning 6-4, 6-1. After the first win, the boys drew the #4 seed which went on in the tournament and placed 2nd overall. LaVelle and Wright lost 1-6, 0-6. Waiting to play for three hours, Norwalk finally had to go up against Bryce Brien and Michael Porubcin from Bettendorf. LaVelle and Wright dropped the first set 1-6, but came back again in the 2nd and won 7-5. This set up a 10-point super tie- breaker. The boys went up and never looked back and won 10-7. With the Victory over Bettendorf, this allowed the boys into Consolation Play and assured of no less than 8th place. The boys drew the #3 seed that was upset in the winners bracket. They were from Fort Dodge and their names were Jon Bowser and Andrew Stover. LaVelle and Wright lost to them 1-6, 2-6. This set up the final match of their high school career and LaVelle and Wright wou/d not go out without a great fight. They had to play the Valley team made up of Tommy Maigaard and Nicholas Fifield. This time LaVelle and Wright won the first set 6-4. However, Val- ley played a great 2nd set winning 6-1. This again set up another Super 10 fie-breaker. The boys went out to battle and won easily 10-4. This allowed the boys to place 7th in the Tourney. Their great leadership and play will certainly be missed by the Warriors next year.
