Photo by Brandon Pope FLINT – Kearsley will have the homecourt advantage when the high school boys’ tennis regional playoffs take place today. Teams have to win, place second or earn 18 points to move on. The winner and runner-up at No. 1 Singles earn automatic berths.

There will be no state-ranked teams at this particular regional, but that doesn’t mean that the Hornets won’t have a stiff task on their hands with the teams that are competing.

Joining the Hornets at the regional are Bay City John Glenn, Cadillac, Clio, Goodrich, Owosso, Petoskey and St. Johns.

Coach Cory Fisher’s Kearsley team is led by Jack Vollmar at No. 1 Singles, Adam Sefa competes at No. 2, coming in at No. 3 is Mike Judd and at No. 4 is Marshall Judd.

The Doubles tandems are paced by the No. 1 duo of Philip Stites and Chase Lang, Trenton Griffith and Chris Moyer are the No. 2 team and No. 3 consists of Brendan Nowacki and Kaleb Loyer. Kearsley has been forfeiting its No. 4 doubles matches.
