Wa-Hi's Davis alternate to regional tournament

Cameron Davis places fourth at the district tournament in Yakima Saturday and Monday.


YAKIMA - Wa-Hi's boys tennis team wrapped its district tournament Monday at Kissel Park with one player qualifying as an alternate to the regional tourney, while the whole Blue Devils squad placed third.

Wenatchee won the tournament and Richland was second.

Cameron Davis placed fourth overall, defeating three of four opponents in five sets, and is first alternate to the regional tournament.

Blue Devil Kevin Leier placed fifth overall and Jack Crouter was sixth. There were 28 players at the tournament. Davis, Crouter and Leier were also selected All League players.

"What a great weekend for the Blue Devils," said Wa-Hi coach Ted Cummings.

All three players had matches against each other throughout the day. Davis defeated Leier, while Crouter and Leier went to three sets with Leier emerging victorious.

"It was odd being neutral as a coach in those matches, as I just let them slug it out without interference," Cummings said.

Davis managed to top Davis' Ben Chang, who he lost to three times in 2010, then topped Leier 6-3, 6-1, but fell twice to Rihcland's Simeon Yang.

Leier came back from his lose to Davis to top Crouter in three sets after an injury timeout, turning a 3-4 deficit into a 6-4 win.

In doubles play, Blake Rowley and Ruben Kuznetsov had narrow losses to the third and fourth place teams (Wenatchee and Richland) but managed to top fifth-seeded team for third place.

And Nam Delespierre and Parker Postlewait had a narrow loss to the Richland team in a two-hour, three-set match.

The regional tournament is Friday and Saturday in Wenatchee.
