2-A MEN’S TENNIS



CAUDELL SURVIVES IN SINGLES FINAL IN NCHSAA 2-A MEN’S TENNIS



CARY— Ethan Caudell of St. Pauls won the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men’s tennis tournament singles championship in rather unusual fashion on Saturday afternoon at the Cary Tennis Center.



Caudell was actually trailing in the final when Taylor Sullivan of Kill Devil Hills First Flight had to retire due to cramps with the score 6-7(2), 6-2, 3-4. Sullivan began to cramp badly in the third set while leading 4-1 and tried to battle through it but just couldn’t.



Both finalists had survived tough three-set matches in the morning semifinals against opponents from Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons. Sullivan beat Matt Daly while Caudell was getting past Greg Galush.



The doubles championship was an all-Gibbons affair and a rematch of last week’s Mideast Regional finals. Jonathan Fedorkowicz and Chris Geaslen defeated teammates Chris Betz and Tom Ayres 6-4, 6-2.



Fedorkowicz has now been a part of the state champion doubles team the past three years, pairing with Ryan Daly to win the 2007 and ’08 crowns.
