Wherley, Lloyd win District 6 doubles title

State College’s Matt Wherley and Owen Lloyd won the District 6 Class AAA boys’ tennis doubles championship Saturday.

Wherley and Lloyd beat Altoona’s Jake Colledge and Kyle Good 7-5, 3-6, 6-0 in the finals.

“This was a very good matchup and all four guys played excellent doubles at times,” Little Lions coach Jane Borden said. “The shifts in momentum were huge and the match went back and forth several times. Matt and Owen took charge at the beginning of the third set and never let up. They did an outstanding job of working together, executing and staying active.”

Wherley and Lloyd will compete in the PIAA Class AAA doubles championships in Hershey on May 27.

State College will take on DuBois in the first round of the District 6 Class AAA team Championships on Monday.
