Senior Jack Dausman was the lone Bronco representing Coopersville in the 2017 Boys Tennis State Championships held at Hope College in Holland. The team fell short of qualifying after finishing 4th in their regional but Jack qualified by being the Regional 1st Singles Champion. Dausman had only 2 losses on the season going into the State Finals and earned a 2nd seed meaning he was considered the second best player in the State in Division 3. Because of his high seed he earned a first round bye. In his first 3 matches, he lost only 9 games and had victories over 1st singles players from Parma Western, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep and Williamston. He won the semi-final match against last year’s Division 4 State Champion, Oliver Weaver of Williamston, in straight sets with scores of 6-4, 6-1. In the Championship Match, he faced Benji Jacobson of Cranbrook-Kingswood who is the defending Division 3 State Champion. Jack played extremely well but ended up being beaten by 6-2, 6-4 score. During the course of the championship, Jack became a crowd favorite and received a huge ovation when he received his runner-up medal. He represented Coopersville High School well with his outstanding play and his personal high class manors on and off the court. And even though Jack was the lone Bronco, he won enough points on his own to have the Broncos finish in 14th place in the team score. He finished ahead of 7 other teams competing. Well done, Jack Dausman! Congratulations on an outstanding State Finals and an impressive high school career.
