PHS was missing half of its normal varsity lineup due to an injury and another school commitment. The Panthers had several players off their junior varsity squad contribute to winning the tournament which was rain-shortened.

“Overall, everyone played very well, considering the wind and cold and later the wind. Being as shorthanded as we were, I am very proud of how we competed against topnotch competition,” said Panther head coach Scott Milslagle.

“The two JV doubles teams we brought up will only benefit from their opportunity to play in these situations and they continue to impress at every turn.”

Drew Schmitt and Isaac Fintak were up from the JV and made it to the finals at No. 2 doubles. They lost the first set and the match was then called due to rain. The PHS duo placed second.

The Panthers were led by Matthew Primozic who won the No. 1 singles title, and the No. 1 doubles team of Gabe and Gavin Binversie who earned first place.

Primozic defeated James Paradisan of Waunakee in the finals after the PHS senior won the first set. The rest of the match was rained out.

The Binversie brothers defeated Ben Steffen and Ryan Neuman of Madison La Follette in the title match. The PHS duo won the first set before the rain called off the rest of the match.

Plymouth’s Riley Josephs and Colin Roth, up from the JV, won the consolation bracket in No. 3 doubles play.

“Riley and Colin played very well in their first varsity invite together and will only continue to get stronger as they play more tennis together and play against tougher competition like they did at this invitational,” said Milslagle.

Anghelo Gangano of PHS won the No. 2 singles consolation crown.

Timo Beltran was 1-1 at No. 4 singles for PHS.
