Tennis: Kingsford sinks Escanaba, 5-3

KINGSFORD — Kingsford dominated singles and downed Escanaba 5-3 Tuesday.

The Flivvers won all four singles matches in two sets. But the Eskymos claimed three doubles victories.

Kingsford avoided a doubles sweep when No. 4 Reece Fortner and Ethan Fox spilled Chris LeMire and Max Shariff 7-5, 6-1.

“Escanaba was tough at one doubles (with Paul Carne and Nick Dufour),” said Kingsford coach Mark Shanks. “Our four doubles are freshmen and they kept their composure.”

Kingsford (4-0-1) travels to unbeaten West Iron County today.

“We’re very inexperienced but showing improvement,” Shanks said.
