Jesuit boys run away with Class 6A state tennis crown
The juggernaut that is the Jesuit boys tennis program rolled on in impressive fashion at the 2017 Class 6A state tournament this week.
The Crusaders swept the 2017 singles and doubles titles, and in the process, captured their second straight state championship and their ninth in the past 10 seasons. The 6A state tournament was held Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Babette Horenstein Tennis Center (formerly Tualatin Hills) in Beaverton.
In singles play, Jesuit freshman Peter Murphy — who upset Grant's top-seeded Andrew Finkelman in his semifinal — battled past Westview junior Luke Lemaitre for a second straight week, this time beating his Metro League foe 7-6 (4), 7-6 (1).
