Berries top Kings for eighth straight sectional tennis title.

Logansport’s boys tennis squad won its eighth straight sectional crown by defeating Lewis Cass 5-0 in the championship of the IHSAA Logansport Sectional at Logansport High School Friday.

The Berries only gave up one game in singles play and seven games in doubles play.

Logansport’s No. 1 singles player Bryan Zehner won 6-0, 6-1 over Cass’ Brady Truman. Nathaniel King was tops against Brad Berlet 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 singles, and Lucas Eastburn also won 6-0, 6-0 over Tyler Cottingham at No. 3 singles.

“It was a little unexpected [to win 5-0], but we played extremely well at every spot,” Logansport coach Mike Montgomery said. “King lost his first game in the opening match of the sectional, but won the next 36 in a row. We dominated singles play, and I was happy with everyone. Bryan Zehner has won 50 singles matches over two and a half seasons.”

The Berries’ No. 1 doubles team of Dustin Clements and Kaleb Overway came out on top 6-2, 6-1 over Nolan Lowe and Brennen Garland, and the No. 2 doubles team of Matt Jennings and Jared Cole won 6-1, 6-3 over Diego Manzo and Manny Prado.

“The No. 1 doubles team struggled against Twin Lakes, but they turned it around,” Montgomery added. “Cass was also trying to make a strong point at No. 1 doubles with Lowe.”

It was Montgomery’s fourth straight sectional title, and his seventh straight year with the current group of seniors after moving up with them from middle school coaching.

“I had Zehner, Clemens and King since they were sixth, seventh and eighth graders,” Montgomery explained. “It has been interesting to have them since they were sixth graders on up.”



Class A, No. 7-ranked Pioneer went 2-2 in the tournament. The Panthers defeated Rensselaer Central 25-15, 25-14 and Knox 25-23, 26-24, but lost to Andrean 25-16, 25-17 and Michigan City 25-16, 21-25, 15-13.

Shelby Roller led Pioneer with 46 assists, 23 service points and 21 digs. Sarah Dorris had 33 digs, 30 kills and 12 service points. Megan Smith came up with 20 service points and 15 digs. Jessica Lawrence dug up 23 digs. Hannah Tevis contributed with 19 kills. Riley Morris added 15 assists, and Kelsey Hill had 15 service points.
