Johnson County’s tennis team made a good showing in the District with one of its star players reaching the semifinals. Mitchell Stockinger took tournament champion Jacob Nuckolls down to the wire before losing in two sets 6-3, 6-4.
Stockinger had dominated his opponents until his match against the undefeated sophomore sensation from South.
He defeated Sullivan North’s sixth seed 8-2 in his first match and North Green’s two seed 8-0 in his second one.
Stockinger knew it was going to be a good day. He left knowing that he had given it his best shot.
“I didn’t have very much trouble in my first two matches,” said Stockinger. “I kept making some big shots that carried over into my match with Jacob. I was extremely satisfied with how I played. I was on top of my game.”
He definitely found his groove against Nuckolls. He had him down 4-3 before watching him storm back to win the game.
