Gladstone falls but Parmet shines

GLADSTONE – Aaron Parmet and Caleb Harrington battled it out in three tight sets, but it was Parmet who laid claim to No. 1 singles supremacy in this early tennis season Thursday as he defeated Kingsford’s Caleb Harrington 7-6, 6-8, 6-4.

“It was a great match by Aaron. He played great and roughed out a tight first set,” said Braves coach Dan Williams.

Unfortunately for the Braves that was their only victory as the Flivvers rolled to a 7-1 team victory, most of them by impressive margins. Kingsford won six matches by a combined score of 64-6. However, Tyler Wells and Jeremy Kadish gave Kingsford’s Aidan Wienke and Dalton Allen something to think about, falling 6-4, 6-4.

“No. 1 doubles played really well and had a very close match. They are playing really well together,” Williams said.

Gladstone plays at Escanaba Monday.
