1-A NCHSAA MEN’S TENNIS — FINAL: PINE LAKE PREP’S VICARIO WINS NCHSAA 1-A SINGLES CROWN
CARY — Max Vicario of Mooresville Pine Lake Prep rolled to the singles title on Saturday morning in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A men’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center.
Vicario cruised past Zuri Kent-Smith of Queen’s Grant 6-0, 6-1 in the championship match. It was only the second singles defeat of the year suffered by Kent-Smith, who had advanced to the finals with a grueling three-set victory on Friday afternoon in a match lasting three hours and 15 minutes.
Harrison Tseng and Joseph Fisher of Raleigh Charter combined to win the 1-A doubles crown, beating the Elkin duo of Ryan Schell and Chad Vestal in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3. Schell had earned the 1-A singles championships a year ago and elected to compete in doubles this year, while Vestal was part of the Elkin team that was runner-up in the state tournament last year.
