The Colonial League Boys Tennis Championships were held last Friday at Saucon Valley High School, and a number of Salisbury players had impressive outings.

The duo of Tyler Sechler-Stone and Dylan Weber at No. 2 doubles had the best showing of the day. After a win over Bangor’s Grant Kaye and Dan Rubel (8-5) in the first round, the No. 3 seeded Salisbury duo downed Wilson’s Matt Glovas and Jon Fischer, the No. 7 seed, 8-5. The Falcons’ run came to an end in the championship match against Moravian Academy’s Matt Barnes and Jules Bemporad, 8-1.

The other Falcon doubles team of Brad Hnatow and Bryce Erdman, the only returning starters from last year, earned the No. 5 seed. The two came up short to No. 4 Andre Baadsvik and Sean Scholes of Bangor.

At No. 2 singles, Aaron Kahn defeated Wilson’s John Scott in the opening round, 6-0. Kahn then lost to eventual champion Robbie Shaff of Moravian, 8-0.

The No. 10 seed at No. 3 singles, Salisbury’s Chris Marinos, edged No. 7 Marc Roselli of Palmerton in his first-round match. But Notre Dame Green Pond’s Aristotle Blasi ended his run moments later with an 8-2 victory.

The Falcons’ Patrick To came up short to Wilson’s Anthony DeArmas at No. 1 singles, 6-0.
