State 5A tennis
DENVER -- It was a tough opening day for the six members of the Legacy High School tennis team who qualified for the state tournament at Gates Tennis Center.
Legacy's Rufus Thompson and Samuel Law fell 6-2, 6-4 to Regis' James Lynch and Aidran Sobolevsky in the first round at No. 1 doubles. Lynch and Sobolevsky lost in the semifinals, which elimimanted Thompson and Law from playback possibilities.
At No. 3 doubles, Legacy's David Johnson and Samuel Neuhalfen fall 6-4, 7-5 to Brian Kong and Mathis Joens of Lakewood. The Tigers' duo lost in the quarterfinals, so Johnson and Neuhalfen are out of the tournament.
At No. 3 singles, Valor Christian's Ryan Greenfield beat the Lightning's Alex Anthony 6-1, 6-4. But because Greenfield also won his quarterfinal match (against Fairview's Isaac Christensen), Anthony is still alive for a playback chance later in the tournament.
