Unfortunately, Columbia City only had 2 players on its roster this season.
In adding West Noble, let's see what we know about a team we've never played...
The West Noble Chargers finished last season with something around a 7-7 record. Their results were a little bit hard to track down, so they might have a slightly better (or worse) record that I couldn't find. They play in the Northeast Corner Conference. Last year, they finished 4-4 in their conference, a conference that includes Fairfield, Angola, and Westview as the perennial best three, Fremont, West Noble in the middle and the bottom is Central Noble, Churubusco, Prairie Heights and Lakeland. I think West Noble finished 4th last year.
They graduate their #1 singles and 1 of the #1D. That means they return the following players with their records from last season in parenthesis. The position beside their name is what they mostly played last year.
#2S - Jared Swank (4-11)
#3S - Josh Gaff (10-5)
#1D - Ryan Kendall (6-7)
#2D - Grant Moser (9-4)
#2D - Jacob Musselman (9-6)
I don't know that much about the JV, but they did have a player named Beck Groff who played 2 varsity matches, winning 1 and losing 1.
To sum up, this should be a good match for us next year. If we were in West Noble's conference last year we would have finished right with them - we lost to Angola, Westview, and Fairfield but defeated Prairie Heights from the bottom group. We also defeated Fremont, as the Chargers did as well. I look forward to this being a good addition to our schedule and a group we need to be ready for!
