Parchment boys' tennis collects first regional win
Saturday, May 20, 2006
Gazette Staff Reports

It was a first for Parchment and business as usual for Allegan and St. Joseph in regional tennis action Friday. Parchment won out in a four-team battle for Division 4 honors at Battle Creek, Allegan won its own regional and St. Joseph ran away with first place at Sturgis in Division 3 regionals. ``This is the first time a boys' Parchment tennis team has ever won a regional,'' Parchment coach Don Stowe Jr. said.

``Our strength is really in doubles. Our 1, 2 and 3 doubles teams didn't drop a set the whole day,'' said Stowe, whose Panthers were ranked No. 5 in the coaches' poll. Nate Bonney teamed with Alex Wolf to win at No. 1 doubles, John Hodgkinson and Ken Pratt (who now have a 20-1 record) formed the No. 2 tandem and Mike Draves and Caleb Story won at No. 3. Parchment had 23 points, Kalamazoo Christian was a close second with 20 and Hackett Catholic Central was an even closer third with 19. All three, plus Jackson Lumen Christi, which had 18 points, qualified for the Division 4 state tournament at Holland on June 2 and 3.

``That's really unusual, to have four teams qualify from a regional,'' Stowe said. ``That hardly ever happens.'' Hackett got individual wins from Alex Dombos (No. 2) and Kevin Bedford (No. 4), while K-Christian's Dave Sarakapato (No. 3) was also a regional champ in singles. Christian's Ben Boekeloo lost to Lumen Christi's Michael Calderone in the No. 1 singles final, 6-0, 6-2.
