Tennis: State veteran Johnson, singles players expected to carry Brown Deer; close losses costly last season

April 10, 2008

Led by returning state Division 2 singles qualifier Demetrius Johnson, Brown Deer hopes to break the trend of close losses that plagued the team in Woodland Conference play last season.

Unfortunately for the Falcons, that trend pervaded their opener April 5, as they dropped three duals in the Martin Luther Invite, including two by 4-3 counts.

"We actually have a pretty good mix of seniors, juniors, sophomores and even a few freshmen," Brown Deer coach Jim Matousek said.

Johnson, a junior, is in the first singles position, while seniors Paul Wade and Nguta Kasambo will fill the next two. Freshman Trevor Martin, who went 3-0 at Martin Luther, is at fourth singles.

In doubles, sophomore Nick Korth will join with junior Adam Magusiak at the first position, while others in the mix include the teams of freshmen Aaron Blumberg and David Weaver and the pairing of senior Matt Blumberg and sophomore Steve Lederman.

Others expected to compete for spots are seniors Joule Vang and Beau Genske, junior Pat Rice and sophomores Toriann and Trenton Ricks.

"We're blessed with a lot of different styles, so we can find people who work well together," Matousek said.
