Without dropping a single set, the Skaneateles boys tennis team got off to a rousing start in the OHSL Liberty division last Thursday afternoon and beat Manlius-Pebble Hill 5-0.
Of the three singles matches, Will Bolton had the toughest time, working his way to a 6-3, 7-5 victory over Ryley Almond. Ethan Wilcox bolted past Jon Koss 6-0, 6-2, while Ryan Sayko handled Justin Oh 6-3, 6-1.
Meanwhile, in doubles the matches went the same. Will Bersani and Matt Kallas got past Tristan Almond and Tyler Greco 6-4, 6-2, while Sasha Darovshikh and Katik Sharma topped Alex French-Lawyer and Ben Parks by those exact totals.
Then the Lakers made it 2-0 on Friday afternoon, beating Westhill 5-0 in a contest where, three times, matches went to three sets.
Every time, Skaneateles prevailed, starting with Bolton overcoming a rough start to beat Dan Chang 1-6, 6-1, 6-3. Bersani and Kallas topped Dan Haynes and Brian McMullen 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, while Darovshikh and Sharma had a 6-4, 2-6, 10-5 win over Nate Chapin and Jordan Frary.
