Kings, Berries win to advance to today’s sectional final

Kings, Berries win to advance to today's sectional final

Logansport and Lewis Cass will once again meet for the boys tennis sectional championship.

The Berries advanced with a 5-0 win over Twin Lakes on Thursday, and the Kings recorded a 4-1 win over Delphi in their semifinal match.

The final is set for 4:45 p.m. today.

The Berries (16-3) are seeking their eighth straight sectional title.

Against Twin Lakes they allowed just three games total in the singles matches while the doubles matches were more closely played.

Bryan Zehner defeated Spencer Andrews 6-1, 6-0 at No. 1 singles, Nathaniel King defeated Justin Crabb 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 and Lucas Eastburn defeated Alex Halsen 6-2, 6-0 at No. 3.

Dustin Clements and Kaleb Overway defeated Evan Luzadder and Connor Gutwein 6-4, 6-4 at No. 1 doubles, and Matt Jennings and Jared Cole defeated Blake Harker and Tucker Reyes 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2.

“Our three singles players played really well. Nathaniel King was as solid as he’s played all year,” LHS coach Mike Montgomery said. “We struggled at the doubles spots. Neither one played real well. Sometimes it depends on who we’re playing and we don’t play real aggressively.”

For the Kings against Delphi, Brady Truman defeated Elliott Atkinson 6-2, 6-0 at No. 1 singles, Brad Berlet defeated Jack Gillam 7-5, 6-3 at No. 2 and Tyler Cottingham defeated Caleb Myers 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 at No. 3.

Nolan Lowe and Brennen Garland defeated Braden Abbott and Joshua Gillam 6-4, 6-4 at No. 1 doubles, and Diego Manzano and Manny Prado lost to Colin Edging and Marcus Austin 6-2, 7-5 at No. 2 doubles.

The Kings have given the Berries several very close matches over the recent streak. The Berries won 4-1 early in the season although the Kings have a different lineup for the sectional.

“Cass has always made their doubles fairly strong. Garland and Lowe are going to be solid,” Montgomery said. “I think we should be stronger at the other four spots.

“You can’t sell the Cass kids short. They’ve got two or three kids who played last year. They know what it’s about. We have to play the way we can play.”
