Dustin McCarrell

Connersville’s Dustin McCarrell moves in for a return at No. 1 doubles, in CHS’ tilt with New Castle, Monday night at Spartan Courts. McCarrell and teammate Gage Brown defeated James Harris and Sam Underhill 7-6 (7-5), 7-5, part of a 4-1 team victory over the Trojans.

With only three duals and the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference standing between it and the sectional, visions of a run similar to last year's semistate visit might be in the minds of some.

Ask head coach Chris Bloom about it, and he'll tell you that his players aren't among that lot.
