The 2018 Boys Tennis team had a solid performance this season with an overall record of 10-4. During the season, they finished 2nd in the Metro League, 4th at the Tournament of Champions and 2nd in Districts. They lost 5-4 in the regular season to eventual State Champion John Burroughs, but had a strong 5-4 win against Lindbergh High School, who went on to finish 3rd in Class 2.
The highlight of the season was Evan Erb ’21 qualifying for State and eventually winning the Class 1 State Singles title with a pair of wins against Springfield Catholic’s Jasan Nayar (7-5, 6-2) in the semifinals and John Burroughs’ Rory Sutter (7-6, 6-3) in the finals. It was an incredible run and marks the rare occasion of a freshman winning a State Championship. Erb’s feat had not been done at MICDS since 2002 when Amanda Craddock ’06 won.
