Anderson survives Elwood to advance

(Continued)

“I told the guys this is what to expect today,” Ellis said. “They (Elwood) have nothing to lose, we were 2-0 against them, and we have everything to lose.”

Ellis was pleased with the way Moran, Swanson and the No. 2 doubles team of Miller and Hall played but knows everyone must bring an even better effort for today’s match with Alexandria.

“They beat us 3-2 in the season,” Ellis said of an earlier match with the Tigers.

However, Ellis feels the Indians are playing their best tennis when it counts.

“We’re doing well," he said. "We finished strong, we got most of our wins toward the last third of our season. The guys are pulling it together and peaking at the right time.”

For Elwood, the No. 1 doubles team will advance in the tournament while Hoppel joked that with the scores 4-1, 5-0 and 3-2, maybe one more shot against Anderson would do the trick.

“We finished 6-12, three of those losses were right here,” Hoppel said. “Maybe if we get them one more time. But they have a little too much 'pop' for us.”

Anderson will play Alexandria today at 4:30 p.m. at Highland for the right to advance to the championship, which is scheduled for Friday at 4:30 p.m.

    There's a different kind of buzz surrounding the Indianapolis Colts as they prepare to report for training camp today at Anderson University. Expectations have been high inside the locker room since Chuck Pagano arrived in January 2012 and promised shortly thereafter to "Build the Monster." Two 11-win seasons and one playoff victory later, the mantra has changed.
