High school state tennis championships
→Chris Haworth, No. 1 singles, Putnam North: He’s been the best player in the state all season. Can he end it with a championship?

→Duncan Fugitt, No. 1 singles, Edmond Memorial: A towering presence at 6-foot-4, has come into his own in senior season.

→John Byrne, No. 1 singles, Bishop McGuinness: Overshadowed by the dominance of the girls, Irish boys aren’t bad, either.

→Kevin Boyd and Sam Geurkink, No. 1 doubles, Norman North: First year together has brought nothing but success.

→Brian Diefenderfer and T.J. Becker, No. 1 doubles, Putnam North: Panthers have a lot more than just Haworth.

→Gavin Dubberstein and Truit Gray, No. 2 doubles, Edmond Memorial: Doubles have been a strong point for Bulldogs all season.

→Eric Olson and Baylor Spring, No. 2 doubles, Edmond North: Won regional, beating solid Putnam North tandem in the process.

→Luke Howard, No. 1 singles, Heritage Hall: It’s been a rebuilding year for the Chargers, but they are definitely still contenders for championships.
