Bulldogs fall in regionals

The King’s Fork High School boys’ tennis team saw its season come to an end in the quarterfinals of the Class 4 Region A singles and doubles tournament.

After a strong effort Monday in the start of the region singles and doubles tournament, the Bulldogs’ season came to an end Tuesday. Giancarlo Cecchini lost in the singles quarterfinals to Raj Vora of Lafayette High School 1-6, 2-6. In doubles, Cecchini and Sajaan Sharma won against Heritage High School 6-0, 6-0. They lost in the doubles quarterfinals to Smithfield High School 1-6, 1-6.

Coach Matthew Yusckat was happy with the way his team had progressed all season, noting that players stepped up big when the team needed to win.

“I had many players step up periodically to secure wins for us throughout the season,” he said. “The players got better as the season wore on.”

King’s Fork finished with a 6-10 record and Yusckat believes the record didn’t show how well the Bulldogs really played this season.

“I am very proud of that record and the players, because I know how much work and dedication these boys put into tennis to win,” he said.
