  • It’s been an exciting couple of weeks for Mon­te­video High School senior Ryan Maroney. Nine days after receiving the Floyd Arnold Award, giv­en to Montevideo’s outstanding senior male athlete, Maroney qualified for the state Class A tennis tournament.
     
    Maroney finished second in the Section 3A singles tournament at Red­wood Falls Tuesday, losing 6-1, 6-2 in the championship match to Jess Han­sen of Lac qui Parle Valley/Dawson-Boyd. Han­sen, just a freshman, is the fourth brother in his family to win the section singles crown.
     
    Maroney was the No. 2 seed and he advanced to the semifinals with a pair of straight-sets wins.
    Maroney’s semifinal match against Luverne’s Dustin Deutsch was a three-set battle. Maroney led 5-1 in the deciding third set, but Deutsch came back to win the next three games before Maroney put the match away.
    Maroney will take a 14-5 record into the state Class A tourney on June 6 at the Reed Sweatt Tennis Center in Minneapolis.
     
    “He’s in phenomenal shape and he never gives up on a single ball,” said Montevideo coach Mark Johnson.
