NORTH PLATTE — The Kearney High tennis team battled the wind and an ambitious schedule to defeat North Platte 9-0 Monday afternoon.

“For the most part we did a nice job adjusting to the wind,” KHS coach Troy Saulsbury said. “Today ended a stretch of 12 matches in four days. It will be nice to use the rest of this week to rest and regroup and focus on cleaning up a few things in practice.

“We have gotten a little loose with some shots like our serves and returns.”

Ryan Mahalek had a strong day, only losing one game in his two matches.
