Mitchell boys tennis continues to roll, sweeps quad

MADISON — The Mitchell boys tennis team kept its perfect record alive, sweeping three teams, including defending state champion Watertown, 9-0 at a quadrangular Saturday in Madison.

The Kernels are now 15-0 and 8-0 in the Eastern South Dakota Conference with the win over the Arrows, as well as Madison and Yankton.

“We got a chance to play the defending state champs Watertown and things turned out pretty good I like where we are headed at this point in this season,” Mitchell tennis coach Pat Moller said, adding that he does not remember the last time Mitchell defeated Watertown in boys tennis.

Junior Jacob Cersosimo set the tone for the Kernels at No. 1 singles and with partner Alex Hegg at No. 1 doubles. In his three singles matches, Cersosimo dropped just six games.

“Jacob is playing at that level that is leading this team in the right direction and every time he goes out he gets a little better,” Moller said. “He is becoming one of the elite high school tennis players in South Dakota.”

Up next for the Kernels is a makeup match with Sioux Falls Washington at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Sioux Falls. Mitchell plays Sioux Falls Roosevelt following the match with the Warriors.

“We have to remember that we haven’t won anything yet,” Moller said of his teams goals this season.
