Reagan Tennis Takes 1st Place in 5 Divisions

Reagan tennis took 1st place in 5 divisions Wednesday at the Reagan Varsity Invitational.  Taking 1st place in boys singles was Jon Totorica who only dropped 5 games the whole tournament while Jackson Flummer took 1st place in the singles B draw.  In the semi-finals and finals, both of Jackson’s opponents had to retire during the match due to cramping.  In the finals, Jackson found himself trailing Gavin Fonger of Reagan 2-5 in the first set before coming back and taking a 6-5 lead.  At that point, Gavin had to retire.  In boys doubles, Deuce Daniel and Joseph Snyman took 1st place and had the match of the tournament in the semi-finals when they saved multiple match points to come back and win 6-1, 4-6, 14-12 against Alamo Heights.  The point of the match was when Reagan was down match point and Alamo Heights had 5 overhead smashes to try to win match point but Joseph and Deuce played amazing defense retrieving each smash and lobbing it back.  The point ended when the last smash was a little slower and Joseph ripped a forehand cross court to force the error.  Taking 1st place on the girls side was Dharshini Mahesh in the girls singles B draw and Kara Greenlee and Alissa Ortiz in girls doubles.

Finishing 2nd place in mixed doubles was Kyle Totorica and Emily Higgs who lost the finals to Madison high school’s Graidyn Bowe and Mattea Bowe 6-4, 6-2.  Senior, Shaan Desai and Imanol Avila finished 2nd place in boys doubles losing 6-0, 7-6 to Deuce Daniel and Joseph Snyman.  Taking 3rd place for Reagan was the freshman pair of Paulina Razo and Livia Washington in girls doubles and Carys Owen in the girls singles B draw.

Next up for Reagan is the New Braunfels Varsity Invitation on March 5.
