York's boys tennis team had three athletes compete at the state tournament, and all three had strong showings.

Brendan Peterson went 3-2 in singles at the state tournament. Peterson had a tough draw in the first round, facing St. Charles East's Jasper Koenen, who went on to place in the top eight. The York senior rebounded with three wins in the consolation draw as he set the school record for wins in a season with 41.

In doubles, Jake Shostak and Spencer Kost went 2-2, winning one match in the main draw and another in the consolation draw.

As a team, the Dukes scored six points and finished in a tie for 31st place.


IC Catholic

The Knights lost a sectional final against Westmont 2-0 on Saturday in a game that featured a combined five hits by the two teams. The Sentinels scored an unearned run in the first inning and added another run in the sixth off IC pitcher Jessica Conenna.

IC finished the season 21-16 and has a chance to become much better next season. The Knights started three juniors, five sophomores and a freshman in the sectional final. Conenna, a junior committed to Northern Illinois, will again be expected to play a big role in the circle and in the middle of the lineup.

Sophomore Andy Margason was 14th in the 110-meter hurdles and 16th in the 300-meter hurdles in the Class 1A state meet at Eastern Illinois University. He was the lone TC representative at state.
