It was an unusually quiet afternoon on the Center Grove High School grounds Monday.
Most of the only sounds were of tennis balls being struck and the squeaking of shoes on the surface of the courts. The Trojans’ team was practicing for this week’s IHSAA state boys tennis tournament with a quiet confidence.
The Center Grove Sectional begins today, with the defending champion Trojans facing Franklin in the opening round at 4:30 p.m.
The winner will take on Greenwood in Thursday’s semifinal matches. Whiteland and Indian Creek meet in Thursday’s other semifinal, with the championship match slated for Friday afternoon.
