Ed North: Casey Distaso will play at state...
By Robert Przybylo
It was the biggest question I had all tennis season: what would Edmond North’s Casey Distaso do? He’s been the face of the boys tennis team the last three years.
However, he is also the valedictorian and the graduation speaker and has signed with Georgetown. So yea, he’s got other things going on, too.
After all the debate and a lot of back and forth, saw Distaso’s name on the regional results Monday so he is in. And to the shock of no one, he earned the regional title.
The 6A regional Earlywine was able to be completed before the severe weather swept through the state late Monday afternoon.
With Distaso at No. 1 singles, a strong unit just got a whole lot stronger. Freshman Nate Roper, who has been solid at No. 1 when he’s had his chances, now moves to No. 2 and would have to be considered the favorite there.
The doubles teams of Nick Jordan and Bryce Lilley and Alex Mathieson and Baylor Spring also won the regional as the Huskies swept the board.
Have to give North the edge heading into this weekend’s state tournament. And have to give some real kudos to Eric Olson. One of the better players in the state and he won’t even crack the top six for the Huskies and has accepted it.
I’ll have much more to say in terms of a state preview, but there are a lot of regionals that need to be completed Tuesday.
Distaso has taken Putnam North’s Chris Haworth to the brink a couple of times. I’d still say Haworth is the heavy favorite, but the North team is going to be one tough out this weekend at all four spots.
