The Centennial High School boys tennis team will compete in the City League coaches tournament Monday, May 5, and Tuesday, May 6, at Columbus South, Linden-McKinley and Wolfe Park.

Last year, senior Ben Oatney went 5-0 in the tournament to place first at first singles.

"This is more of an individual competition," junior Weston Clarke said. "Right now, I'm not sure if Ben Oatney and I are going to play singles or if our coach (Barbara Stevenson) is going to put us together to play doubles."

Centennial beat Eastmoor Academy 4-1 on April 22 to improve to 4-1 overall before playing Wellington on April 28. The Stars lost to Whetstone 5-0 on April 23 to drop to 2-1 in the City-North Division before playing Beechcroft on April 30.

"Whetstone was a pretty tough loss," Clarke said. "It was an important match and we ended up losing. Ben Oatney (first singles) and I (second singles) both went three sets, but we lost. We were expected to beat Eastmoor, but they have good singles (players) so it was a good win."
