2018 Tennis update

Coronado and Franklin Dominate 6A; Jefferson, EPHS, Chapin Control 1-5A; Bel Air, Riverside, Eastlake, Hanks, and Horizon Take 2-5A District Honors; Fort Hancock Girls Doubles Team Finishes second at State Tournament

The one shining moment for El Paso area tennis teams at the 2018 UIL State Tournament was provided by a team to the east of El Paso. Fort Hancock's 2-5A Girls Doubles team of Miranda Galindo and Jenna Aguilar won the silver medal at the state meet. The state tournament was no stranger to Galindo and Aguilar as they had finished in fourth place in 2016. The Fort Hancock girls defeated Madalynn Woelfel and Weslynn Boatright of Thrall 6-4 and 6-2 in their first match of the state tournament. They then defeated Shelly Gerner and Ellery Martin of Blue Ridge 6-2; 3-6; and 6-2 in the State Semi Finals. Galindo and Aguilar's quest for a title came up short as they lost the deciding match to Mason High School's Kate Gillespie and Reagan Glentz 7-5 and 6-2. Congratulations to Miranda Galindo and Jenna Aguilar for their second place finish in 2-5A Girls Doubles.

El Paso area high schools had high hopes entering the UIL Regional playoffs. Coronado and Franklin both had experience players. Jefferson had just won its first ever spring district tennis title. El Paso High and Chapin both had an outstanding District 1-5A Tournament while Bel Air, Riverside, Hanks, Eastlake, and Horizon could say the same in District 2-5A. The high expectations generated by the various district tournaments faded in Regional play. No individual player or team survived the weekend to advance to the state tournament the following week.

The story in 1-5A tennis was the girls singles match. Jefferson team-mates Jia Diau and Katrina Aguila played each other for the district title. Their story is similar to the story of Franklin's Sebastian Herrera and Coronado's David Cenk during last year's singles match in 6A. Diau and Aguila are good friends and have built up quite a rivalry. The two battled it out for three sets and then a deciding tie breaker. Diau would take top honors by winning 2-6; 6-3; 7-6; and 8-6 in the tie breaker. Both would make the trip to Regionals.

In other 1-5A action:

Boys Singles: Rohan Kamath Chapin defeated Jacob Maese 6-3 and 6-4

Boys Doubles John Jay and Juan Pablo Munoz of EPHS won the title

Girls Singles Jia Diau Jefferson defeated Katrina Aguila Jefferson 2-6; 6-3; 7-6; and 8-6 tb

Girls Doubles Karla Ramos and Sophia Sapien of EPHS won the ttile

Mixed Doubles Cesar Gallardo and Caprice Huitron of Chapin won the title.

Jefferson won the girls team title while EPHS won the boys team title. It was Jefferson's first ever district team title in Spring tennis.

In 2-5A action:

Boys Singles Mario Gallinar of Bel Air won the title

Boys Doubles David Lopez and Jalen Thomas of Horizon won the title

Girls Singles Denise Melendez of Horizon won the title

Girls Doubles Meagan Vasquez and Evelyn De La Cruz of Hanks won the title

Mixed Doubles Adriana Hinojos and Daniel Vidaurri of Riverside won the title

Bel Air edged out Riverside for Boys Team title while Eastlake, Horizon, and Hanks finished in a three way tie for the Girls Team title

6A Tennis

Coronado and Franklin continued their strangle-hold on 6A tennis winning all the district honors:

Boys Singles Sebastian Herrera of Franklin repeated as district champion

Girls Singles Isabella Sambrano won the title

Boys Doubles David Cenk and Nickolas Spurbeck of Coronado won the title

Girls Doubles Elissa Perches and Andrea Andujo of Coronado took the title

Mixed Doubles Ethan Katz and Skyler Stogner of Coronado won the title.

I couldn't find much information on Regional play but I do know that no one from 5A or 6A qualified for the state tournament.

San Elizario's Carlos Munoz won his opening round match at the 4A regionals defeating Angel Alaniz of Pecos in boys singles 7-6; 6-1. Munoz would lose his Quarter Finals match to Burkburnett's Marius Kleckner 6-2 and 6-2. Julie Sotelo of Clint dropped her opening match to Danielle Rangel of Perryton 6-2 and 6-3. In the 2A Regionals Wink's CJ Mercier and Jonah Smith defeated Mount Enterprise's Courtney Parsley and Jase Bell in Mixed Doubles 6-1 and 6-2. They would lose to Cason Dudley and Ryli Ruffin of Mason 6-2 and 6-2 in their next match.

El Paso public high school team titles might be scarce but individual boys and girls have done well at the state tournament. The UIL has been awarding tennis championships for boys since 1913 and for girls since 1919. The following are lists which show tennis titles won by individuals and doubles teams. There have been no mixed double teams that have won the state championship.

2015 Update-Nathan Brown wins the 6A Singles Tennis Title

Coronado High School once again dominated the El Paso area in tennis. The Thunderbirds took four athletes to the UIL State Tournament. Wilson Lambeth, Cameron Bilsbarrow, Majorie Antohi, and Nathan Brown all represented Coronado at tournament. Other are players were Annette Posada of Tornillo, and Fort Hancock's Mercedes Trevino and Ernesto Sanchez.

The most successful of the El Paso area contingent was Nathan Brown. Brown was on a year-long quest to win the 6A Boys Singles Title after finishing runner up in 2014 and he did just that. The tournament was plagued with torrential rain that caused many delays but that didn't deter Brown from his goal. He defeated Dane Esses of Houston Memorial by default in the Quarter Finals. Next up was Colin Markes of Round Rock Westwood in the Semi-Finals. Brown dropped the first set 2-6 but then won the next two sets 6-1 and 6-4 to advance to the State Finals. Brown defeated Charles Tan of Austin Westlake 7-5 and 6-1 to complete his year-long quest of winning the 6A Singles Title.

Nathan Brown's career at Coronado has now come to an end and it would not be too much of a stretch to say that he may well have been the most dominant boy's singles player in T-Bird history. Brown finished in the Final 8 in 2013, finished runner up in 2014, and won the title in 2015. Quite a career. Brown's title is the first tennis title for Coronado since 2003 when the Thunderbird Doubles team of Vince Knipp and Tyler Lyon won a state title. It was Cornado's first Singles title since 1992 when James Rey captured the championship. Brown's title is also the first Boys Singles championship won under the leadership of Coach Jerry Pippens.

Wilson Lambeth and Cameron Bilsbarrow of Coronado made it all the way to the Finals of the 6A Boys Doubles. They defeated Austin Moninger and Josh Van Winkle of New Braunfels 6-2, 6-3 in the Quarter Finals. Austin Westlake's Jordan Pitts and Nick Ruzicka would fall to the Coronado duo 6-2, 6-2 in the Semi-Finals. Lambeth and Bilsbarrow would finish runner up in 6A Doubles competition when they were defeated by Houston Memorial's Sam Giammalva and Max Palmer 6-3, 6-2.

Majorie Antohi of Coronado represented the T-Birds in the 6A Girls Singles tournament. Antohi defeated Elizabeth Tedford of Dallas Highland Park 6-0, 6-4 in the Quarter Finals before losing to Fort Bend Dulles' Marlee Zein 6-1, 7-5 in the Semi-Finals.

Annette Posada of Tornillo High School reached the 3A Girls Singles Quarter Finals before losing to Hana Folse of Brock High School 6-0, 6-0.

Mercedes Trevino and Ernesto Sanchez of Fort Hancock competed in the 2A Mixed Doubles event. They were defeated by Mason High School's team of T.R. Kerr and Katie Smith 6-0, 6-2 in the Quarter Finals.

2015 TAPPS Tennis Update

Cathedral High School finished 3 rd in the team standings at the TAPPS 6A Tennis Tournament.
