Elkin’s Schell Wins NCHSAA 1-A Men’s Singles Tennis; Salisbury’s Ogden Is 2-A Singles Champ

1-A NCHSAA MEN’S TENNIS—FINAL

ELKIN’S SCHELL WINS NCHSAA 1-A SINGLES CROWN

                 CARY— Ryan Schell of Elkin won the singles title on Friday in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A men’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center.

                  Schell defeated Dylan Cuddington of Rosewood, the 2013 1-A runner-up, by 6-2, 6-1 in the championship match. Cuddington suffered his first singles loss of the spring after 16 consecutive victories while Schell ran his record to 21-1 overall.

                  Elkin has had a singles player in the finals for four of the last five years, as Tyler Macy of Elkin played in three championships from 2010 through ’12 and won the ’12 title. Schell had teamed with Macy to win the 2013 state doubles crown.

                  The Elkin doubles team in this year's final did not fare so well, however, as Chad Vestal and David Bullin lost to Sam McLaughry and Zack Jones of Kernersville Bishop McGuinness in the championship, 6-1, 6-4.  The Bishop duo now has an 18-1 doubles record on the season and it was the fourth consecutive year a Bishop doubles team qualified for the state finals.

2-A NCHSAA MEN'S TENNIS–FINAL

SALISBURY'S OGDEN WINS 2-A SINGLES, CARRBORO TEAM TAKES DOUBLES
 
               CARY— Michael Ogden of Salisbury captured the singles championship on Friday with a couple of straight-set victories in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center.
              Ogden downed Brian Freiburghouse of Carrboro, last year’s 2-A singles runner-up, in a morning semifinal by a score of 6-4, 7-5, and then swept to the state championship with an easy 6-1, 6-0 victory over Hendersonville’s Jacob Fuqua. 
              Fuqua won the 1-A championship a year ago but Hendersonville moved up to 2-A due to realignment.
              Max Fritsch and Jake Zinn of Carrboro teamed to win the doubles title, winning both of their Friday matches in straight sets. The Carrboro duo downed North Lenoir’s Evan Kramer and Will Hardy for the championship, 6-2,6-0, after beating Clint Comadoll and Spencer Storey of Salisbury by that identical score in the semifinals.
             A Newton-Conover team had won the 2-A doubles championship for the last four years, but Fritsch and Zinn ousted the Red Devil duo of Tyler Barrymore and Gordon Wepner in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Barrymore had teamed with John Tate to win the doubles title in 2013.
