Collinsville Tennis 4/6/2017

Thursday, William Reynolds was staring at a 2,500 pound Brahman Bull. This particular bull happened to be the 1-singles division of the Ponca City Invitational Tennis Tournament.

Collinsville vs Edmond Memorial: William dominated this match from start to finish. The 6-A Bulldogs were muzzled and taken to the pound.

Collinsville vs Bixby: This match had all the ingredients for a dramatic affair. William, the 3-seed, faced off against the 2-seed from Bixby. Moreover, several Spartans had gathered around the court hoping to distract William with their banter. While the ingredients for drama were present, William didn’t feel like cooking. He disposed of the Spartans in short order. The Spartan advance was turned back by the 98 square inch Wilson racquet wielded by Reynolds.

Collinsville vs Oklahoma Bible Academy: This would prove to be the toughest match of the day. William took the court against the overall 1-seed in the tournament. His opponent also placed second in the state tournament last year. William began the match on offense. He won the first set, 6-0. To their credit, OBA fought back with ferocity. They took the second set 6-4. Before the tie-breaker, OBA parents and fans could be heard asking, “where the heck is Collinsville?”. They can now check their map, because on Thursday, William put Collinsville on it. He won the tie-breaker 10-8, and took home the gold. What about that Brahman Bull? It was wrestled to the ground, its horns in William’s hands.

Go Cards,

Coach Robert Sparks
