Windsor Wizards Roundup for Oct. 13: Windsor qualifiers stay alive in 4A boys state tennis tournament
October 13, 2017
Pueblo — Windsor's No. 4 doubles team of Kenneth Blake and Kaden Henry will patiently wait to learn their fate, as will No. 3 singles player Blake Pendleton after the first day of the Class 4A Boys Tennis Championships on Thursday at Pueblo City Park.
Blake and Henry won their first-round match, 6-4, 1-6, 7-5, against Pueblo West's Brendan Bradfield and Caydon Branine. They lost in the quarterfinals to Cheyenne Mountain's Bennett Ziegler and Carver Ward, 6-1, 6-4.
If Ziegler and Ward win their semifinals match today, Blake and Henry (11-3) will re-enter the bracket and have the chance to play back to a third-place match.
A playback possibility also exists for Pendleton (11-2), a senior, who lost 6-0, 6-2, to Kent Denver junior Sam Nassif in the first round. Nassif won in the quarterfinals to keep Pendleton's hopes alive.
Meanwhile, Windsor's No. 2 doubles team of senior Kieran Joe and sophomore Peyton Shewmon (10-4) saw its season end.
They lost 6-3, 7-5, to George Washington's Cousteau Reinig and Jaeson Chin in the first round.
