Ed North tennis: Casey Distaso dilemma lingers...
By Robert Przybylo
Ah, that first sun of the spring is coming back to bite me right now. I’m red and hurtin’ all over but have no fear as I can still type.
Let’s start a team-by-team look of the Edmond and private schools at the Heritage Hall Tournament of Champions with the boys’ champions: Edmond North.
Going in, thought this would be a battle between North, Union and Putnam North. The Huskies are a funny team because I’m not sure if there is a championship-caliber player on the squad.
What they lack in standouts they more than make up for with a complete and balanced team. You could see it at the tournament where the No. 1s placed third and the No. 2s placed second.
I was impressed by freshman Nate Roper. In such a big spot at No. 1 singles and was incredible, defeating two solid players in Carl Albert’s Austin Manger and Metro Christian’s Jason Proctor.
There were a lot of new challenges out there, but I felt like I played good and had some real good matches. It was fun to be a part of this.” – Roper
The elephant in the room is Casey Distaso. Coach Dee Wallar declined to comment on Distaso’s situation this weekend. With Distaso, a strong team only gets stronger. Without him, well, we’re already seeing what they can do.
