Lions Earn Two Titles, Finish Second at Baltimore County Tennis Championships

TOWSON, Md. – Senior Alli Hill won her third consecutive county title at the No. 2 girls singles position and classmates Sam Harsel and Joel Lee paired up for the county title in the No. 2 boys doubles draw as the Dulaney Lions tennis team finished in second place at the 2017 Baltimore County Tennis Championships, Wednesday evening at Carver Center for Arts and Technology.

Overall the Lions placed second in the four-day event with 25 points, just behind repeat winner Hereford.

Wednesday was a big day for Dulaney as all four remaining entries won their semifinal match to advance to the final round.  In the No. 1 girls singles draw senior Jessica Ye claimed her semifinal victory in straight sets over Pikesville before dropping a hard fought final match to Amara Rose from Randallstown, a three-time winner of the event.

Sophomores Steven Wan and Tony Yao clawed their way to the finals in the No. 1 boys doubles draw by coming from behind to defeat rival Towson and advance.  In the final though, the duo ran out of gas and fell to a hot Franklin pair to finish with a silver medal.

Previously Dulaney earned a silver medal in the girls No. 1 doubles draw as sophomores Anna Boland and Cindy Shou cruised to the finals, but just fell short in three sets against Hereford.

The Lions also picked up a point in the No. 1 boys singles bracket as freshman Alex Panyan advanced to the quarterfinal round before bowing out to eventual champion Jake Fishkin from Pikesville.

Dulaney has the weekend off from competition before returning to action on Saturday, May 13 for the Region Tournament.
