Record: 9-1

Gray showed his versatility and team-first attitude all season. He was one of two underclassmen on this year's team and should be a leader next year.

Wil Rodwell, Putnam City North
Junior No. 1 doubles

Record: 35-5

A finalist at No. 2 singles last year, Rodwell made a smooth transition to doubles. Paired with Brian Diefenderfer, the duo played all of the top teams in the state and held their ground.

Along with Rodwell, the duo placed third at state, losing to the eventual champions. Finished career in style as Panthers' tandem beat the Class 5A champions in their two meetings this year.

Coach of the Year

Dee Ann Wallar, Edmond North
The uncertainty of Distaso's status was rough for everyone, but Wallar kept the team together and the group was stronger for it in the end. The boys were dominant all season in earning their first title since 2003.
