High school tennis: State College opens season with victory

State College kicked off its boys’ tennis season with a dominating 5-0 victory against Susquehanna on Monday.

The Little Lions did not drop a set in sweeping the singles and doubles matches. Ed Badding, Cooper Josephs and Enrique del Castillo netted singles victories. The doubles teams of Luke Plowden-Daniel Scholl and Sam Wherley-Ben Mitchell cruised to easy wins.

State College has not lost a regular-season match since 2007.

“The guys did a nice job today considering we started tryouts last Monday and have had little time to prepare,” Little Lion coach Jane Borden said. “We have quite a few kids capable of playing in the varsity positions, so it should be an interesting season.”
