Before coach Ryan Posey took control of Indian Creek’s boys varsity tennis program five years ago, the Braves struggled to scrape together two wins per season.
Since then, Indian Creek has dominated its regular-season schedule to claim five straight Mid-Hoosier Conference titles.
At least 10 wins per season is now the norm for the Braves. But with larger schools such as perennial power Center Grove standing in the way, success in the postseason and in the Johnson County Tournament has been elusive.
Indian Creek finished 14-6 last season but fell to the Trojans in the championship rounds of the county tourney and the sectional.
This year, the Braves cruised to an early 9-0 record and easily clinched the conference title before dropping their first match of the season, 3-2, to Franklin in the county tournament’s opening round.
