Kenston sophomore Austin Barr won three of his four matches during last Thursday and Saturday's Division I Northeast District tennis tournament at Oberlin College to punch a return trip to states.
In his three victories, Barr disposed of his opponents in quick fashion, rendering no more than three games in any given match.
His lone loss was a three setter against Massillon Jackson junior Joey Thomas, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, in the quarterfinals. Last year, Barr lost a two-set match to Thomas, 6-2, 7-5, in the district semis.
The Hawken boys tennis team claimed its third consecutive Chagrin Valley Conference title on Saturday at Kenston High School, as the Hawks won three of five courts during the league tournament.
Hawken captured both doubles brackets and the second singles court title, while the Hawks' first and third singles players finished runners-up, to score 23 points, besting runner-up Kenston, 18 points, third-place Beachwood, 14 points, fourth-place Orange, 13 points, and fifth-place Chagrin Falls, seven points.
In the first singles bracket, Kenston sophomore Parker Banning defeated Chagrin Falls senior Mac DeGreen, 6-0, 6-1, to advance to the finals, while Hawken freshman Ryan Leizman won a three-set match against Orange senior Tejas Kashyap, 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, to advance.
Solon and Kenston players didn't make very many friends during the 21-team Division I sectional tournament last week on the Comets' home courts, as they ran the show to claim six of the eight spots for districts.
A repeat of last year, the doubles bracket resulted in an all-Solon final, despite the Comets graduating David Shankman and Brian Yang – their No. 1 tandem in 2013.
On Saturday, seniors Dillon O'Brien and Eric Goldberg defeated teammates Nam Le and Rushil Shah, 6-4, 7-5, for the doubles crown.
On Saturday April 26th, the Kenston Bombers Boys Tennis team traveled to Lexington, Ohio to play in the Lexington Minuteman Invitational. The tournament was very strong with teams from all around Ohio. The Bombers played exceptionally well and tied for second place with Jackson High School, falling short to Walsh Jesuit by one point. However, the Bombers have a chance for revenge on Thursday, May 1st as they take on Walsh once again. The match will be played at home at 4:30; any support would be greatly appreciated. This coming weekend the Bombers are hosting the Chagrin Valley Conference Tournament which includes Hawken, Chagrin, Beachwood, Orange, and Kenston. The Bombers are looking for a CVC tournament win after finishing 3-1 in the duel matches.
