"I thought it was great to let those seniors close out the season that way. They deserved it for all the hard work they've put in this year," Paris added.
Three of their top-six singles players, including the Ray brothers that also make up the top doubles duo, return next year for Ottumwa. Still, being able to recapture being a part of a group of so many players that came up together as part of a team is definately something that will be unmatched going forward for the Bulldog boys tennis program.
"When you lose 13 seniors, that's obviously a huge part of your team," Paris said. "We'll have 10 returning players back next year. They've done a good job listening to those seniors and focusing on what it takes to be successful and keep buidling the program up to where we need to be at each and every season."
"I think we can all say it's one of the best decisions we've ever made to be a part of this team. All the memories we've made coming up together. It's definately something we'll always remember," Bohlmann added.
