PREP BOYS TENNIS: Minutemen on to regional finals

Fairfield wraps up season with loss to East Noble

DUNLAP — Concord, as it has all season, needed all three singles points Tuesday night to advance to today’s Concord Regional tennis final.

The Minutemen got just that, besting Angola, 3-2 to move to within one win of a regional title.

Concord will face East Noble today at 5 p.m. on the upper courts at Concord. The Knights edged Fairfield, 3-2 Tuesday night to earn their slot in the finals against the host Minutemen.

Concord coach Todd Denton said the steady play his three singles players — No. 1 Nick Pollock, No. 2 Bernardo Cadario and No. 3 Jared Searer — have displayed all season was on display again Tuesday.

“These guys play tennis all year-round,” Denton said. “They know what we expect and what we need from them.”

Pollock, one of the Minutemen’s three seniors, is wrapping up his second season at the top singles position. Tuesday’s regional tournament was his first.

Pollock said he didn’t really feel all that much pressure.

“I was a bit nervous at first, but I was able to settle into my game pretty quickly,” Pollock said.

That game, Pollock said, consists of being patient, controlling the baselines and consistent serving.

“I didn’t have any double-faults today,” Pollock said.

All three of the Concord singles players dispatched their Angola opponents in straight sets. Pollock topped Cameron Hall, 6-4, 6-2; No. 2 Bernardo Cadario defeated Chris Calvelage, 6-3, 6-4; and No. 3 Jared Searer bested Blake Trusty, 6-2., 6-0.  

Fairfield coach Mike Filbrun, while disappointed with the regional tournament loss, was pleased overall with the 2013 season.

“A 17-4 record, NEC championship, sectional championship,” Filbrun said. “I’ll take that.”

The Falcons say goodbye to just three seniors: Austin Christner, Marcus Rodes and Samuel Clayton.

The 2014 season begins now for the returning Falcons, Filbrun said.

“The guys need to put in the work in the offseason,” Filbrun said. “That’s what gets you to this point.”
