Knights Start Off Season FAST

The Boys Tennis Team has started off the 2014 season 5-0, with a non-region win against a tough Bingham team and region wins against Westlake, Lehi, Riverton and American Fork. The Knights will play the toughest part of their schedule this week playing 2 deep and talented teams in Pleasant Grove and Juan Diego.
The Varsity has gotten off to their strong start with the singles play of Brocton Andrus and Derek Schetselaar with 3rd singles being platooned between Sam Johnson and Caleb Lambert who have both made great contributions.
In doubles, Ben Bearss and Kyler Baumgartner have meshed well together in several thrilling wins, while Aaron Story and Bryan Gricius have played the lions share of 2nd doubles matches and done so successfully.
Other Varsity contributors to the Tennis teams success include Dallin Carrier and Jacob Black.

Our Junior Varsity squad is also undefeated and is young, hungry and talented.

Hopefully the next update won't take me 3 months !!    COACH L

Lady Knights Take a Close 2nd Place @ State

The Lone Peak Girls Tennis Team competed @ State on Oct. 9th and 12th. When the dust had settled on Saturday October 12th , the Girls finished with 20 total points. Davis High School edged the Knights for the State Championship with 22 points. While there were many highlights of the tournament, the State Championship by the 1st doubles team of Haley Schettler & Lauren Allen was maybe the best highlight.
The girls played their hearts out and I could not have been more proud of how they competed and 'left it all on the court.
At 1st singles, Leah Heimuli mowed opponents down in the first 2 rounds and in Saturdays semifinal rematch of last years 2nd singles final, she played Breezy Turley from Davis HS, who she lost to last year in straight sets. Leah won the first set and seemed poised to take the match but she lost a hard fought match in 3 sets. 
At 2nd singles, Morgan Hall lost one game in her 1st three matches and went up against Whitney Turley from Davis HS in the final, Though Morgan lost in straight sets, she played some of her best tennis of the year. Morgan and Leah are both sophomores and it will be exciting to see what they can accomplish over the next 2 years.
At 3rd singles, Electra Cochran also breezed through her 1st three matches, losing only one game before playing Eliza Hafen from Davis in the finals. Both girls were evenly matched and played long points, a tribute to their consistency. Electra eventually lost in a tough two set match but not before giving it her all throughout the match.
At 1st doubles, Haley Schettler and Lauren Allen had an interesting road and nearly did not make the 2nd day of competition, going up against a tall athletic duo from Brighton High School in the 2nd round. After losing the first set, Haley and Lauren won the last two sets 6-4,6-3. In the semi's they quickly dispatched Davis High School, setting up a final with Bingham HS, a match they won 7-5, 6-2.
In 2nd doubles, JJ Bitton & Sarah Nielson, in their first exposure to State Competition, ran through their first 2 matches and won their semifinal match with relative ease before also going up against a Bingham team in the final. Fighting the Bingham team and some jitters proved too much for the girls as they lost a tough two set match.

All in all, a tremendous season for the girls this year, one that they, their parents, certainly the Coaches and all of Lone Peak can be proud of!

On Saturday September 28th the Lone Peak JV won championships in singles as Madeline Glasgow(1st singles), Olivia Harkness (2nd singles), Reagan Curtis (3rd singles) and Sarah Johnson (4th singles) all took home individual titles. Not to be outdone were the 4 doubles teams who also won championships- Sierra Squires & Brooke Spencer ( 1st doubles), Tieler Diederich & Bailey Andrus (2nd doubles), Hannah Bentley & Sydney Sheffield (3rd doubles) & Ellie Slighting and Ava Curtis (4th doubles). These girls have been rock solid in their play all year and proved it in the tournament.

As a team, the Varsity & Junior Varsity lost one match out of close to 180 matches total this year. They not only finish the year undefeated but are riding a 48 match winning streak as well.

On Tues Oct 1 and Weds Oct 2, the Varsity girls participated in the region tournament to determine the team champion and to determine which individual players will be going to state. The Varsity girls proceeded to sweep every individual championship and ran away with the team championship as well. Singles Champions included Leah Heimuli (1st singles), Morgan Hall (2nd singles) and Electra Cochran (3rd singles). In doubles, Knights Haley Schettler & Lauren Allen (1st doubles) and JJ Bitton & Sarah Nielson (2nd doubles) both won championships. The match of the tournament had to be the singles championship @ #1 singles between Leah Heimuli & Sarah Clifford of Pleasant Grove. In a match that exceeded 2 hours the 2 girls blasted monster ground strokes back and forth and each hit big winners on big points. When the dust settled, it was Leah prevailing 6-4,2-6, 6-3 over the very talented Sarah Clifford. 
The Lady Knights will now prepare for State, armed with 5 #1 seeds for the tournament.State tournament is at Liberty Park on Sept 9th  & 12th .
Well done Ladies, great job!!
