Class 4A Tennis
Chargers take third place
It was a learning experience for the young Heritage Hall team. A squad that didn’t feature any juniors or seniors ended up placing third.

Leading the way was the No. 1 doubles team of freshman Bear Federman and sophomore Cooper Shear. The pair placed second, losing to Cascia Hall in the finals. Cascia Hall cruised its way to its eighth straight title.

The Chargers also placed third at No. 1 singles with freshman Luke Howard and No. 2 singles with freshman Jonathan Borsky.

Saints pair ends up second
It was a solid weekend overall for OCS, which placed fourth, but an even better weekend for the No. 2 doubles team of freshman Braxton Bates and junior Calvin Warner.

The duo, seeded third, advanced to the championship before falling to Cascia Hall in the finals.

OCS No. 1 singles player Connor Tebow placed fourth, as did the No. 1 doubles team of Austin Bell and Gabe Stewart.

Comets place sixth
Classen was able to get a seventh-place finish from No. 1 singles Chris Chan and a fourth-place outing from No. 2 singles Arturo D’Argence to place sixth in the team race.

"We fought hard, and that’s all you can ask for,” coach Ron Mims said. "Both of them can come back, and we’ll be stronger because of this experience.”
