2-A NCHSAA MEN’S TENNIS–FINAL
CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHES OVER QUICKLY IN 2-A TENNIS
CARY—After three long rounds on Friday in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center, the finals Saturday morning were over pretty quickly.
Both the singles and doubles titles were decided in less than an hour.
In singles, Shelby’s Marshall Parker sprinted past freshman Brian Freiburghouse of Carrboro 6-0, 6-0 to win the championship, the first singles crown for a Shelby player since 2003.
Parker went through the field in the state tournament easily, losing only three games in his eight total sets sets. Freiburghouse survived a tough three-set match in the quarterfinals and then won the last match of the evening on Friday over Carrboro’s Max Fritsch to advance to the finals.
A Newton-Conover team won the 2-A doubles championship for the fourth year in a row. John Tate and Tyler Barrymore of the Red Devils defeated Bobby Decker and Eli Hile of Black Mountain Charles D. Owen 6-3, 6-0, for the title.
Tate teamed with Ryan Lampe to win the doubles championship last year.
