He’s no stranger to Chesterton tennis.

After serving as the assistant coach for the boys and girls teams for the past few years, Tom Bour takes over the reins of the Trojan Boys program as the 2012 season starts tonight at Highland.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do coming off a 5-11 season last year,” Bour said. “We have a lot of experience coming back and I hope that our depth will surprise some teams.”

The head coach at Michigan City Marquette for 10 years, Bour isn’t afraid to move things around and this team’s versatility should lead to that.

“The biggest thing is our versatility,” Bour said. “Outside of a couple of kids that are just doubles players, anybody else can be in the singles lineup or in doubles and be real comfortable. One thing about the way I coach, if I don’t get the results I want, we’ll change the lineup.

“We’ll go through several different ones until we find the one that works the best for us.”

Senior Mike Clemens will man the top spot in the singles lineup with junior Trey Moffett lining up at No. 2 singles. Senior Ryan Sears will play No. 3 singles.

“We were pretty good at the top of the lineup, but we didn’t get many wins at the end of our singles lineup or at number two doubles,” Bour said. “Those are places we need to get wins this year and we’ll have to turn things around.”

In doubles, senior Adam Scheerer and freshman Zac Nabhan will play No. 1 with seniors Remy Hoang and Brent Sergent playing No. 2.

“Mike, Trey, Ryan, Adam and Remy are all returning varsity players for us,” Bour said. “Zac Nabhan as a freshman will be in the lineup and that’s always nice to add an impact player like that.”
