October 13, 2010 - The Wolves finished their fall season last Friday - but they ended on a high note.

After competing against various teams at Novi High School the Boys Varsity Tennis team finished in fourth place out of ten teams, scoring 15 points.

Three more points would have sent them to the state finals this week with the Regional winners Detroit Catholic Central and Novi.

"We did really well," said Coach Chas Claus. "We won every shot in which we had a shot. All my players won their first seeded matches which I think is the first time we did that in the program's history, to go 8-0, in the first round."

Claus contributes the success to the entire team.

"The advice I gave to the team was give yourselves a chance, win the first round match. Then, we will play the first seeds and see what happens," he said. "Maybe we can pull an upset or two.We weren't able to do that but I was proud of the boys. They put themselves in a position to have a shot."

The boys finished with an overall record, 6-5, and 3-3 in the OAA Red. They beat Berkley in their last league match, 8-0.

"It was a nice, complete victory for us," said Claus.

The team graduates six seniors from a lineup of 14 players.

"We bring back a lot of talent," said Claus.

He has three of his singles players coming back and five players in doubles.

"We have some talented juniors and underclassmen, who are ready to step up."
