Osakis sophomore Isaac Maddock came into this spring tennis season as by far the most experienced player for a Silverstreaks program that started back up again for the first time since the 1990s.

Maddock showed he could be an instant contender at the No. 1 singles spot, and he earned Osakis’ MVP award after a 15-2 season.

Maddock finished third in Section 8A. His only losses were against Minnewaska’s Tate Reichmann during the regular season and Camden Broadwell of Thief River Falls in the Section 8A individual tournament. Reichmann beat Broadwell in the individual section championship before going on to win a match at the Class A state tournament.

Behind Maddock was a group of newcomers to competitive tennis. Seniors Logan Grove and Jacob Uhl earned Osakis’ Silverstreaks Award for giving the sport a chance during their final season in high school.

Eighth-grader Bryce Moen earned Osakis’ final team award by being named the most improved player. Moen and Maddock are part of the nucleus who have the opportunity to return next season with Grove and Uhl being the only seniors on the Osakis roster.

This group of athletes performed well in the classroom where they earned a team gold academic award with a team GPA of 3.84. Grove was an academic all-state award winner as a senior with a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher.

LETTER WINNERS -- Logan Grove, Jacob Uhl, Connor Gulbranson, Isaac Maddock, Marcus Wolf, Jacob Taplin, Bryce Moen, Micah Moore, Tyler Stier
