INDIANAPOLIS — Goshen’s Danny Boussom and partner Connor Johnston of Novi, Mich., captured the ages 16-and-under doubles title in the U.S. Tennis Association Midwest Closed tennis championships this week in Indianapolis.

In singles, which featured 128 of the top players from across the Midwest via qualifying, the seventh-seeded Boussom won four straight-set matches, before falling 6-0, 3-6, 6-4 in the quarterfinals to No. 3 seed David Horneffer of Brookfield, Wis.

Boussom then rebounded to win a pair of straight-set consolation matches to finish 6-1 in singles. He allowed no more than three games in any set of his wins, and allowed that many just twice.

In doubles, Boussom and Johnston prevailed in a field of 55 entries. In the championship, the top-seeded duo whipped the No. 2 seeds, Joseph Thomas and JJ Kroot, 6-3, 6-0. They won their first two matches in straight sets, then battled to a 7-6 (7-1), 4-6, (10-3) victory over No. 4 seeds Gianni Ross and Stefano Tsorotiotis in the semifinals.
