The Louisville Leopards Boys Tennis team earned their 500th All-Time Victory as they blanked cross-town foe St. Thomas Aquinas Wednesday 5-0 in a home match. The victory improved the Leopards to 5-1 on the season.

Finally, Vick Knebl played the match of the day. He lost the tie-breaker in the first set, but rebounded with a 6-0 shutout in the second set. He then won the final set 6-3 to help the Leopards preserve the shutout of the Knights.
Louisville is now 500-187 all-time in Boys Tennis. They also lead the Battle for Louisville 21-12 all-time and have taken the last 4 matches against Aquinas.
