Earning titles were Matt Primozic at No. 1 singles; Lex Eggert, No. 4 singles; the No. 1 doubles team of Gabe and Gavin Binversie; and Anghelo Gangano and Eric Novak at No. 3 doubles.

Also placing for the Panthers were Ryan Gallagher who earned fifth at No. 3 singles and the No. 2 doubles team of Ryan Holec and Ben Pierce which was sixth.

It was the second straight year that PHS finished second behind Waunakee in this tourney.

Primozic defeated Waunakee’s James Paradisin in the finals, 7-5, 1-0. Paradisin had to retire in the second set due to a problem with the heat. Primozic was 3-0 on the day.

“Matt repeated as champion of this tournament. It was a great effort to win this against these Division 1 opponents, especially coming back in the first set of the championship match after being down 5-2,” said PHS head coach Clare Sedlacek.

The Binversie brothers won their title match over Waunakee’s Jack McCarthy/Connor Austria- Kemble, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5 tiebreaker) to finish 3-0.

“A great final match by Gabe and Gavin to win in straight sets – the second in a tiebreaker,” said Sedlacek.

Gangano and Novak swept Onalaska’s Darius Namazi and Milean Miljkovic, 7-5, 6-2, in the finals to end the tourney 3-0.

“Anghelo and Eric played really solid tennis all day – getting better with each match and saving their best for the championship match,” the coach observed.

Eggert had a bye in the first round because he was the No. 1 seed and then won two matches in a row. He beat Simon Krasnowski of Waunakee in the championship match, 6-2, 1-6, 10-5 (match tiebreaker).

“Lex didn’t have much of a match in the semifinals but had to really fight hard in the final after splitting sets,” Sedlacek noted.

“It was our first hot day with lots of sun which is great but it takes you a little while to get used to the heat after playing so much in the cold and wind.”
