Kathy Claywell, one of the Explorers’ boys' tennis coaches, said Triad was very tough in the competition and she thought her Marquette boys performed in strong fashion against some difficult opponents.

She and her husband, Jim, the other coach, were very proud of Isringhausen for moving ahead but thought all the other boys played well in the tournament.

Isringhausen has had an extraordinary season, she said.
