Boys tennis: Ed North wins title without an individual winner...
By Robert Przybylo
Some people don’t understand my love of tennis. After back-to-back days at the Heritage Hall Tournament of Champions and all the great matches I saw…that’s why I love tennis.
I would have loved to have taken somebody who has never been there and have them watch all the terrific matches this weekend with me.
The boys was incredibly close and won by Edmond North. Now it’s not that nuts to think the Huskies could win, but it is kinda weird for them to win without earning one of the four titles.
It was balance and consistency that got the job done. Nobody placed higher than second or lower than third, tremendous TEAM effort.
1. Edmond North 26; *2. Edmond Memorial 25; 3. Union 25; 4. Putnam North 22; 5. Metro Christian 18; 6. Heritage Hall 16; 7. Carl Albert 9; 8. Ada 7.
* Memorial wins head-to-head tie-breaker for second
No 1 Singles: Chris Haworth, PCN, def. Logon Collins, Union, 6-3, 6-4
Phenomenal match, expected nothing less. Haworth makes you bring your best game. Because if you don’t, you’re hitting the showers early.
Collins, a Marquette signee, fought back and showed a lot of heart in this one. I don’t want to say I counted him out early in the second set, but…yeah, I counted him out.
The seventh game of the second set (tied 3-3) was incredible. I’m not sure how many deuces it went to (at least seven) before Haworth pulled it out.
Look for a video with Haworth on NewsOK on Sunday or Monday.
Third: Nate Roper, EN; Fourth: Jason Proctor, MC; Fifth: Austin Manger, CA; 6. Bryce Merritt, EM; 7. Jonathan Borsky, HH; 8. Robert Jackson, Ada.
No. 2 Singles: Andre Tardio, Union, def. Eric Olson, EN, 6-2, 6-4
