The Trojans also competed in a meet April 14 at Circle.
Shewey won both of his matches as a No. 1 singles player.
Hamm won his first match in the No. 2 singles bracket. He was winning a match over Lukas Weber of Circle, when the meet was stopped because of rain.
The No. 1 doubles team of Harry Faber and Daniel Gray lost two matches, but they defeated Brian Kessler and Tony Treweeke of Circle, 8-6.
Hillsboro’s No. 2 doubles team of Tyler Funk and Jeff Pritchard lost both matches.
