BOYS TENNIS: Wednesday's roundup

JEFFERSON 4, JAMES BUCHANAN 1 >> James Buchanan's boys tennis team had a chance to finish with a winning record, but Jefferson, W.Va. handed the Rockets a non-league defeat.

"We were hoping to get to double-digit wins, but .500 (9-9) isn't bad for such a young team," JB coach Terri Beegle said. "It was a little anticlimactic this week (after the Mid Penn tournament), but overall, I was pleased with the effort this year. We'll be back."

The Rockets' No. 1 doubles team of Isaac Shenton and Josh Summers won again to finish the season with an 18-2 record.

Hunter Sowers lost a tough one at No. 3 singles, 6-5, 7-6 (7-4), while the No. 2 doubles team of Matt Schofield and Luke Leidy fell in three sets after taking the first set.
