The Woodhaven boys varsity tennis team had an outstanding season, wrapping it up with 5 wins, 5 losses, and a tie.

The boys worked hard this season to make it to leagues and those four eye-catching athletes were the teams #1 and #2 singles players Jimmy Olbrich and Micheal Budai, as well as the #1 doubles players Zach Owczarzark and Reid Philabaum. The team faced significant challenges over the season, but through their hard work and tenacity, they were able to overcome these setbacks and come out in the top 3 at leagues under Trenton and Wyandotte.

While wrapping up his final year, senior Budai won an outstanding 22 out of the 28 matches, making for a one of a kind season. His most memorable match of the year was when he defeated Wyandotte, winning 6-4, then 7-5.

The teams #1 singles player Jimmy Olbrich made a groundbreaking change from doubles to singles and says, “I worked really hard during the off season and was able to make a hard transfer from doubles to singles and all that hard work is paying off.” The team made sure there was never a dull moment on and off court with their electrifying team spirit and intense games.
