H.S. TENNIS: Patriots move into quarters

LEXINGTON — The Patriots’ quest to re-capture the 11th Region tennis championship got off to a very solid start on Monday at Shilito Park.

Model Laboratory did not suffer a loss, getting wins from both its singles players — Gus Benson and Cole Wilson — and also both its doubles teams — Jack Frisbie/James Logue and Nolan Kelly/Blake Benson.

All those players advance to the quarterfinals today at Lexington Christian Academy.

Wilson was the only Patriot to get a challenge. After receiving a bye in the first round, the No. 8 seed went to three sets with Sayre’s Will Farish. Wilson came away with a hard-fought 6-3, 5-7, 1-0 (13-11) victory.

Farish jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the tiebreaker before Wilson rallied. The Sayre standout had two match points but Model’s No. 2 singles player came up big late.

Gus Benson, the defending region champ and No. 1 seed, also got a bye in the first round. He then rolled past Chase Byars of Tates Creek, 6-0, 6-0.
