Boys Varsity Tennis · Cougar Tennis Players Come Close, But Fall Short At Section Singles


  Place Points
Carlynton Senior High School 5th 0

The top two Singles players from the Carlynton Boys Tennis Team traveled to Washington for the WPIAL AA Section Singles Qualifier and competed with the other top players from their section. Senior Gabe Prepelka drew rematches against two early season opponents. He defeated Hopewell’s 2nd seeded player 10-8, and then squared off against Seton La Salle’s Tyler Dollard. In a back-and-forth match, Prepelka lost 11-9, just points away from a trip to the WPIAL Tournament.

Junior Christoph Bernas drew a play-in game versus the 2nd seeded player from Keystone Oaks, and defeated him 10-5. Bernas had little time to celebrate the victory, as he then played the #2 overall seeded player in the tournament, Josiah Newton, from McGuffey, and lost 10-0.

The entire team will have a key Section match Wednesday, April 10, at their home courts in Settler’s Cabin Park, against Keystone Oaks. Match will begin at 3:30 PM.
