Lockport’s depth keys Porters to tournament title

SHARE Lockport’s depth keys Porters to tournament title

Some top players graduated. Some top players didn’t return.

But Lockport’s cupboard was far from bare this season.

The depth of the Porters tennis machine is showing again this year and coach Bob Champlin was pumped upSaturdayafter his team tied St. Ignatius for first place in the Porters’ eight-team invitational.

“It was a great day for the tennis program,” he said. “Every entry from Lockport contributed points for the team and Hana Khatib and Jennifer Lee won the fifth-place match–it was the last match to finish — and it helped secure the tie.”

Tomi Jo Mansell took fourth place in the Flight A singles division, Brit Kupiec-Bethany Plebanek too second in Flight A doubles, Rachel Polke-Eily McCann claimed first in Flight B doubles and Misa Coladipietro-Mary Kate Bucheitt claimed second.

“We had teammates in the tournament competing against each other and two our teams competed for the Flight B doubles,” he said. “The more experience players prevailed.”
