The Sailors won seven of eight flights, led by No. 1 singles player Drew Hackney.

Mona Shores totaled 46 points to win going away. Whitehall was runner-up with 33 points, followed by North Muskegon in third with 30 points.

It was the second-straight individual GMAA title for Hackney, a sophomore, who defeated Whitehall’s Ashton Trnka in the championship match, 6-1, 6-2. Hackney beat North Muskegon’s Troy McManus in the semifinals, 6-0, 6-2.

Mona Shores’ Kayden Hellmann and Victor Powell won flights at No. 2 singles and No. 4 singles, respectively.
