West Genny boys tennis improves to 8-0

Hot at the start, the West Genesee boys tennis team welcomed the brief onset of summer-like temperatures for last Monday's match against Liverpool - and kept on winning in advance of this Thursday's showdown with Fayetteville-Manlius.

The Wildcats' 6-1 victory over the Warriors featured a doubles sweep, saved when Andrew Albert and Brett Smith survived three sets and beat Joe Corcoran and Luke Donigan 6-3, 2-6, 7-5.

Elsewhere, James Buttner and Mike LaValle handled Pat Kenney and Karl Miller 6-1, 6-3, while Tyler Arnold and Mike Plunkett earned a 6-4, 7-6 win over Sean Martens and Steve Schneider. Shane Heyn and Tanner McGuire had a similar result, beating Bogdan Grynyk and Anthony Taormina by scores of 6-4 and 7-5.

WG kept going on Wednesday, improving to 6-0 by handling Auburn 6-1. In first singles, Brent Boleslav topped Rich Granato 6-1, 6-4, just as Garrett Boleslav needed just two sets to get past Parth Patel 6-1, 6-2.

Again, the Wildcats dominated in doubles. Plunkett teamed with Eric Grove to beat Matt Carberry and Erik Falciccio 6-1, 6-0, while Heyn and McGuire picked up a 6-3, 6-0 win over Brad Cuddy and Bryant Wolfe. Buttner and LaValle sailed past Mark Bachman and Tyler Glimpse 6-3, 6-1.

Up in singles, Erik Breault lost in straight sets to Jason Lam 6-4, 6-2. But Brent Boleslav atoned with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Chris Brais, while Garrett Boleslav emerged with a 6-1, 6-3 decision over Mike Schneider.

The Wildcats would sweep a 7-0 non-league match against Bishop Grimes as McGuire played singles, beating Greg Ostaszewski 6-0, 6-2. The Boleslav brothers prevailed in singles, too, with the doubles teams of Arnold-Breault, LaValle-Kevin Jock, Albert-Smith and Alex Fox-Ian Swete losing just three total games in eight sets.

This busy, successful week wrapped up Friday with yet another 7-0 win, this one over the Cicero-North Syracuse Northstars.
