KINGMAN - Getting the first win of the season is one thing, getting it in convincing fashion is another. That's what the Kingman High boys tennis team did when they dismantled Maricopa Monday at KHS, 8-1.

"This is what we needed at this point in the season," said KHS coach Ken David. "We made a couple of changes in the lineup and, hopefully, for the better. Hopefully, we can build off of this momentum."

Kingman (1-2) held a 5-1 advantage after singles action, putting the team match out of reach for Maricopa (1-2). The Bulldogs swept the Rams in doubles, 3-0.

Patrick Chastain won his first singles match of the season at No. 1. He gave Niles Getz a double-bagel, winning 6-0, 6-0.

"I'm proud of Patrick for getting his first win," David said. "He's always playing even when we don't have practices or matches."

Kingman's Gregory Franklin is unbeaten in singles and doubles so far this year playing in the No. 2 slot. Franklin defeated Kidtiyod Kanjana 6-1, 6-0.

"Gregory is on fire right now," the coach said. "He's had experience at No. 1, but No. 2 is a better fit for him."

Kingman's next match is 3:45 p.m. Wednesday at Flagstaff (2-1).
