High school roundup: Lewisburg sweeps Montoursville in tennis opener


LEWISBURG — Ben Koch, Kerry Shutt and Russell Nash had little trouble giving Lewisburg a sweep of the singles matches Thursday afternoon as the Green Dragons blanked Montoursville 5-0 in the opening match of the season for both teams.

Koch and Shutt won 6-0, 6-0 in their singles matches sets while Nash, at No. 3, dropped just one game in a straight-set 6-1, 6-0 victory.

In doubles, Jordan Massoud and Tim Weisbarth won 6-2, 6-2 and Mike McCormack and Wes Sigl won 6-0, 6-0.

Milton 5, Mifflinburg 0

Drew Pace set the tone at No. 1 singles for Milton with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Mifflinburg’s Matt Southerton and the Black Panthers cruised to a win.

The duo of Reece Metzger and Eddie Babakov beat Mifflinburg’s Sam Beiler and Lucas Payson at No. 1 doubles, 6-4, 6-3.

Milton (2-1) travels to Lewisburg today.

Selinsgrove 4, Bloomsburg 1

Selinsgrove’s Theron Fravel lost a close match to Bloomsburg’s Jarrad Harris at No. 3 singles, 7-5, 7-6 (7-5), but the Seals secured a win en route to a 2-0 start on the season.

Rob Smith won at No. 1 for Selinsgrove, 6-3, 6-4 while Safwan Kahn won at No. 2, 6-1, 6-4.

The Seals host Williamsport on Monday.

Danville 4, Jersey Shore 1

Danville’s Nicholas Zotalis lost at No. 3 singles in a tie-breaker on the third set to Jersey Shore’s Derrick Palski, but that’d be the only match that the Bulldogs would win on the night as the Ironmen won their season-opener on Wednesday.
