Wildcat tennis returning to state finalsOctober 12, 2013
Jasper's boys tennis team pulled off what had never before been accomplished in the rich history of the program.
The Wildcats tipped Jeffersonville 4-1 in Saturday morning's single-match semistate at the Ed Yarbrough Tennis Complex, and it earned them a third straight trip to the state finals for the first time in program history. The ninth-ranked Wildcats (18-3) will tangle with No. 3 Indianapolis Park Tudor (14-4) at 3 p.m. Friday in the quarterfinals at Fishers High School; the semifinals and championship will be Saturday at Indianapolis North Central.
Jasper dumped Jeffersonville (19-2) in straight sets at all three singles positions, and the Wildcats finished the victory with Ben Seng and Alex Allen's 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 7-5 rally past Justin Padgett and Chase Kayrouz as Seng and Allen trailed 4-1 in the third set and fought off a match point at 5-4.
