Wildcat seniors top Rangers, reach state semifinals

From Herald Staff Reports

Jasper’s Will Seger and Noah Moss sailed through an all-Dubois County battle at the state finals, and now the Wildcat seniors are two wins away from claiming a state doubles championship.

Seger and Moss handled their quarterfinal matchup in Friday’s individual doubles state finals, scoring a 6-3, 6-2 triumph over Trent Weyer and Sam Beckman from Forest Park. Rain forced Friday’s matches to be moved indoors to the Five Seasons Sports Club; Seger and Moss will continue in today’s semifinal round at the originally scheduled venue, Park Tudor High School.

Today at 10 a.m., Seger and Moss (26-2) collide with Alec Proeh and Austin Proeh (26-3) of Culver Academy. The Culver juniors reached the semifinals by topping Marion’s Daniel Harrold and Amogh Sehgal 6-3, 6-4. The winner of that semifinal bout will face the winner between Carmel’s Charlie Emhardt and Daniel Rodefeld (29-2) or  Indianapolis Brebeuf’s Carlo Alviar and Seth Gochnauer (27-2) in the state championship match at 2 p.m.

Beckman and Weyer closed the season with a 12-2 mark together and became the first Forest Park tennis players to reach the state finals. Both their losses this season came to teams from Jasper.

Moss and Seger are angling to become the first boys doubles team from Jasper to claim a state championship. The Wildcats have reached the state championship match in doubles once before, when Pete Wilson and Nick Seger finished state runner-up in 2006.
