Greeley — Windsor will play in a pair of championship matches, and numerous other Weld tennis players will cling to state tournament hopes as they play in third-place matches today at the Class 4A Region 4 championships at Centennial Courts.
Through Wednesday's first day of the tournament, Dawson leads the eight-team standings with 53 points, followed by Thompson Valley with 44.
Windsor is the highest standing Weld team, sitting in fourth with 34 points.
Wizards No. 3 singles player Blake Pendleton will play in a championship match today against Dawson's Connor Larson. The Windsor No. 4 doubles tandem of Kenneth Blake and Kaden Henry will face Thompson Valley's Seth Dotson and Aaron Hardy in another championship match.
The finals take place this morning with third-place matches at 9 a.m. at Centennial Courts.
Playing in third-place matches are Weld players Max McManigal (Windsor, No. 1 singles), Northridge's Joe Lombardelli (Northridge, No. 2 singles), Andrew Fischer and Wesley Smith (Windsor, No. 1 doubles), Spencer Conway and Gavan Blackburn (Greeley Central, No. 2 doubles), Kieran Joe and Peyton Shewmon (No. 2 doubles, Windsor) and Briggs Reed and Naiose Wilson (Windsor, No. 3 doubles).
