DuBois’ Noah Knarr, shown returning a shot against DuBois Central Catholic last week, beat Punxsutawney’s Nick Humble, 6-2, 6-2, Monday to help the Beavers sweep the Chucks, 7-0.

DuBOIS — The DuBois boys tennis team ran its record to 3-1 on the season with a 7-0 shut out of visiting Punxsutawney Monday.

The Beavers once again got strong play from its senior singles lineup featuring Jimmy Oberlin, Noah Knarr, Corey Giles and Lucas Knarr.

Oberlin bested Vincent Gigliotti, 6-2, 6-3 at No. 1, with Noah Knarr topping Nick Humble, 6-2, 6-2 at second singles.

Giles and Lucas Knarr captured identical 6-0, 6-1 wins against Chucks Garrett Fischer and Ben Fezell at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively.

In doubles action, DuBois senior Blaze Welpott teamed up with freshman Houston Hemke to blank Jake Good and Daniel Smith, 8-0, at No. 3.

Freshmen Zachary Johnson and Cody Jaconski then paired up to best Johannes Fiske and Jaugar McDivitt, 8-3, at No. 2 doubles. The final math to end was No. 1 doubles, where Giles and Lucas Knarr teamed up to beat Ben Skarbek and Fischer, 8-1, for their second wins of the day.

“We haven’t practiced as a team in a couple days, but the boys were able to wipe away any rust and find their grooves,” said DuBois coach Dave Martin. “There were many long rallies, nice net play and angle shots from both sides.

“We still need to work on some minor technical things with shots and adjustments in pacing, but we are so pleased with the performances of these players tonight.”
