District 11 Invite
At Doherty: Palmer won 17 of its 18 matches to easily take the team title, and Mitchell's Chyra Larkin swept all three of his matches at No. 1 singles.
The tournament featured single pro-style sets in each match, with players playing to eight games to earn victories.
Palmer players won at No. 2 and No. 3 singles and swept the four doubles brackets en route to the team title. Terrors sophomore Drew Dickey led Larkin 6-2 in their No. 1 singles match before falling 9-7, with Weiliang Sun and Asher MacEnulty winning at No. 2 and No. 3 singles, respectively.
Palmer's doubles tandems of Jack Laird/Jacob Briggs, Conner Grantz/Alex Dickey, Chris Ionescu-Cobb/Jesse Hollman and Isaac Morse/Mitch Morse won all three of their matches. The Morse brothers got a fight from Coronado's No. 4 doubles team before taking the match 9-7.
"Our guys have progressed real well and have reflected their improvement," Palmer coach Todd Nelson said. "They have improved quickly, too. Nine of the 11 will be coming back next year, so it's a good group."
Coronado was second with nine wins, Doherty picked up four and Mitchell had three in the round-robin event.
"It's nice for them to play three matches in one day, because it gets them ready for regionals," Doherty coach Jason Smith said. "We had some tight matches and some tiebreakers. It gives the kids a chance to go back against someone they played earlier in the year to see if they've made some improvements.
"There was some good competition, so it was good for us."
