Ryan Logan graduates this week and will leave his competitive tennis career in the rear-view mirror.
It’s a career that ended with good memories. Logan helped Navarre finish as the district runner-up and advance to the regional tournament for the first time in program history.
He fashioned a 10-5 record as the Raiders’ top singles player in 2019 and paired with Stathi Sneeder at No. 1 doubles.
The 1-3A district tennis tournament gave Logan two sweet memories. He beat the top seed in a first-round match, and then he and Sneeder knocked off the doubles’ No. 2 seed in the second round.
His singles victory over freshman Isaac Anderton of Washington was a close match set on the main court – and an upset for Navarre’s unseeded player.
“I lost both times against him in the season,” Logan said. “But I knew I could beat him at districts. And that was the longest match I’ve ever played.
“It seemed like everyone was watching, and it was super close,” Logan continued. “We went to a third set, with a 10-point tiebreaker. And I won in the third set 10-8. It was really close and lasted forever.”
