Cocalico tennis team knocks off Mounts
Cocalico earned a clean sweep in singles play last Friday afternoon in Ephrata to key an eventual 5-2 non-league victory over the host Mounts in boys tennis action.
The Eagles earned straight-set wins at one and four as Zach Weinhold and Austin Noll each were impressive in their victories. The key to the Eagles’ team win came at two and three where Conner Martin and Solomon Thorpe earned a pair of tight victories.
Martin edged Ephrata’s Ryan Fritz 7-6 (7-4), 6-0, while Thorpe outlasted Ephrata’s Lukas Olson, 0-6, 7-6 (7-3), 10-6.
All three doubles matches were tight. At number one, Ephrata’s Gabo Murcia and Fritz avenged their singles losses with an 8-7 (7-2) win over Weinhold and Martin. Thorpe and Noll posted an 8-7 (8-6) Cocalico win at two over Olson and Christian Miles, while Ephrata’s Peter Wise and Mario Murcia captured an 8-6 victory at three over the Eagles’ Lucas DiCiano and Kijana Hoover.
Both Cocalico and Ephrata returned to section play Monday afternoon. In Denver, visiting Manheim Central clinched the Section Two title with a 7-0 victory over the host Eagles.
Ephrata, meanwhile, suffered a 5-2 loss at home to Cedar Crest. Olson captured the lone singles win for the Mounts, pulling out a 3-6, 6-2, 10-8 victory. Olson also teamed with Miles to earn an 8-7 (7-5) win in doubles play.
The Mounts also were in action last Wednesday and Thursday, splitting a pair of matches.
Last Wednesday vs. Donegal, Gabo Murcia claimed the lone Ephrata win in a 6-1 loss to the Indians. At number one, Murcia captured an exciting 6-0, 6-7 (5-7), 10-8 victory.
The Mounts then earned a clean 7-0 sweep of Penn Manor Thursday afternoon. Murcia (6-1, 6-2), Fritz (6-0, 6-1), Olson (6-2, 6-3) and Miles (6-3, 6-4) all were straight set winners in singles play. The Ephrata teams of Murcia/Fritz, Olson/Miles and Bob Lowrie and Mario Murcia then closed out the sweep with wins in doubles action.
Cocalico also was in action last Thursday, dropping a 5-2 decision to Donegal.
In that one, Weinhold (6-1, 6-1) and Noll (3-6, 6-3, 10-7 were singles winners for the Eagles. More TENNIS, page B-3
