For twenty years not a single local player that participated in the State’s Tennis Tournament came home with a metal. This year the stateline has two of them.
Rockford Christian’s Brandon Ancona and Auburn’s Tytus Metzler finished tied for 7th in the tournament.
Each player lost their final match in a tiebreaker by two points. If they had won in that round, Ancona’s final high school match would have been against Metzler in the state fifth-place match.
