KINGMAN - The most games any Kingman High boys tennis singles or doubles players could win in their matches was four when Bradshaw Mountain (5-0) swept the Bulldogs Thursday at KHS, 9-0.

The doubles team of Gregory Franklin and Jonathan Marquez grabbed those four games when they lost to the Bears' Austin Powel and Daniel Schmuckler at No. 2, 8-4.

"After a tough loss like last night (Thursday), I think it's best for our guys to regroup and learn from it," said KHS coach Ken David. "We can't put our heads down and dwell on the negatives because tennis is such a mental sport.

"With the season winding down, we really need to focus on the fundamentals and get back to basics."

Kingman (1-3) returns to the court when they play at 3:45 p.m. Monday at Prescott (6-0).
