Wenzel wins district tennis singles title

South Boston News
Jacob Wenzel / May 17, 2018
Halifax County High School’s Jacob Wenzel won the Piedmont District boys tennis individual title Tuesday.

“Jacob’s winning the championship in singles continued his phenomenal year. Both of his opponents were solid players who are going to college to play next year. He was able to handle the pressure of playing in the tourney and come out with one of our first district individual titles in awhile. He improved to 17-0 on the year. I cant say enough about what he has put into this year,” said coach David Riddle.

“In doubles he and Gordon lost a tough hard fought three set contest. We had a few chances to grab the win in the second set but Patrick County came up big when they needed too. Still, these two have nothing to hang their heads about. To have only lost two 1 seeded teams at this point in the season is impressive. They can use the lessons learned today in the individual regionals tourney,” said Riddle.

“We got our first taste of the postseason today and were able to pull out a championship,” said Riddle.


Semis: Jacob Wenzel (HC) def David Bishop (Bassett) 6-4, 6-1

Finals: Jacob Wenzel (HC) def Brandon Carter (Franklin Co) 6-1, 6-2.

Halifax also had action in doubles, but the Comets fell to a Patrick County pair.


Semis: Garrett Worley/Brandon Reeder (Patrick Co) def Wenzel/Gordon Taylor (HC) 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.
