LHS tennis falls, but Zehner advances

Carroll boys soccer advances; Winamac falls

Logansport’s boys tennis team was defeated by West Lafayette 4-1 Wednesday in a Kokomo Regional semifinal match.

Logan junior Bryan Zehner won his No. 1 singles match against Lucas Owen 6-0, 6-3 for the Berries’ lone point. Zehner (23-2) remained alive in state singles tournament play and will compete at 10 a.m. Saturday in Kokomo. His opponent has yet to be determined.

Also for the Berries (18-5), Cory Rozzi was defeated 6-0, 7-5 at No. 2 singles, and Owen Swartzell lost 6-1, 6-2 at No. 3 singles. Dustin Clements and Luke Vernon lost 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 at No. 1 doubles, and Lucas Eastburn and Nathaniel King lost 6-2, 6-2 at No. 2 doubles.

“We played a better match than the first time we played them,” Logan coach Mike Montgomery said. “For some reason we got off to a bad start in four spots other than Bryan. We were down 3-0 at the drop of a hat. It seemed like we were timid and it took awhile to get going.”

Montgomery said Rozzi nearly won his second set to force a third, which could have affected the No. 1 doubles match that was going into a third set. Rozzi was up 5-4 in the second but couldn’t hold on.

“I thought Cory might have a chance but he got off to a bad start. He played the way he’s capable in the second set and kind of let that one get away,” Montgomery said. “No. 1 doubles played as well as they have all year. I thought if Cory could get that split set, the pressure would have swung to West Lafayette. They handled us the first meeting. He didn’t get it done. I think the West Side kids were able to relax a little bit.

“West Side is talented across the board. They’re probably a little more consistent of players.”
