South Western wrapped up its second straight YAIAA Division I tennis championship earlier this month. On Saturday, Mack Meyer and Anthony Miserendino ensured an all-Mustang Class AAA title match by upsetting the top two seeds during the second day of the YAIAA Singles Championships at South Western High School.

Biglerville's Cole Herzing, the top seed in Class AA, survived an upset bid in his semifinal and advanced to a meeting with No. 2 Joel Garrett of Hanover in the final. Both championship matches, as well as third-place matches and the Class AA fifth-place contest, will take place at 4 p.m. on Monday at South Western.

Meyer, the No. 3 seed in Class AAA, eliminated No. 1 Adam Gante of Dallastown, 6-4, 6-3. Miserendino, the No. 7 seed, routed No. 2 Ryan Keffer of Central York, 6-1, 6-2 in their semifinal.

The win over Keffer was Miserendino's second of the day over a higher seed. He had defeated No. 4 Chris Mathews of Spring Grove, 6-4, 6-3 in the quarterfinals. Meyer reached the semis by defeating his younger brother Quin, the No. 8 seed, 6-4, 6-0.

Saturday's results also ensure that the Class AAA singles title, like the team championship, will remain at South Western. Mustang alumnus Tommy Nicklas won the championship last season.

Herzing, who was unseeded in last year's tournament, rolled past No. 7 Zach Hanson of Susquehannock, 6-1, 6-1 in the quarterfinals but lost the first set to York Suburban's Michael Hogg, the No. 3 seed, in the semis. However, Herzing rallied to earn a 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 win. Garrett had an easier time, defeating No. 5 Kevin Shultis of Delone Catholic 6-2, 6-3 and No. 4 Kaltrin Bullaj of Susquehannock 6-2, 6-2.
