Berries net regional victory

Logansport edges Taylor 3-2 to advance to final

KOKOMO — The regional semifinal boys tennis match between Logansport and Taylor came down to the No. 1 singles spot.

In a marathon match that included a long tie-break, many deuce points and countless long rallies, Logansport’s Bryan Zehner outlasted Taylor’s Jack Lipchik 6-7 (8), 6-3, 6-3 to secure a 3-2 win for the Berries.

“It was a very close match. I played a great player who’s very consistent,” Zehner said. “I’ve played him all my life. He’s always hung in there with me. He’s one of my best friends really. It couldn’t have been a better match, really.

“He’s beaten me before. It’s always been close.”

The other four matches were decided before Zehner and Lipchik had finished their first set.

Lucas Eastburn defeated Casey Glick 6-3, 6-0 at No. 3 singles, and the Berries got their other point at No. 2 doubles where Matt Jennings and Jared Cole defeated Connor Leicht and Treaver Harris 6-1, 6-3.

Kamden Kimbler defeated Nathaniel Eastburn 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 singles for the Titans (15-4), and Austin Douglas and Cole Schroeder continued their season with a 7-6 (2), 6-3 win over Dustin Clements and Kaleb Overway at No. 1 doubles.

Zehner (19-4) and Lipchik (19-4) are good friends and are doubles partners in summer circuit play. Zehner plans to play at Trine and Lipchik plans to play at Southern Indiana.

“He definitely had a good start. He started off 4-1 in the first set against me,” Zehner said. “As it went on my shots started to get better and we started rallying longer. We just got into a rally match.”

Zehner was able to recover after a tough loss in the first set. In the third set he broke Lipchik to take a 4-2 lead and was able to hold serve from there.

“I definitely served better once we got new balls in the third set. That was probably the best I served the whole match,” he said. “Yeah, it was crucial breaking his serve. Once I did I had the match.”
