 Boys tennis: Central Ohio nets sweep in Division II

DeSales' Warren wins singles; New Albany takes doubles

Sunday,  May 27, 2007 3:36 AM

New Albany's Skyler Engel, left, and Peter Kobelt celebrate after winning the Division II doubles championship at Ohio State.

Bryce Warren, Peter Kobelt and Skyler Engel played with their best poker faces yesterday at the boys state tennis tournament at Ohio State. They hid their emotion as best they could and stayed level-headed as the stakes got higher with each game.

When Warren, of DeSales, won the Division II singles final and Kobelt and Engel, of New Albany, won the Division II doubles title, each let out a jubilant scream that shouted central Ohio tennis is back.

Warren, a senior, was dominant in his semifinal and final. He defeated Andrew McCarthy of Cincinnati Indian Hill 6-1, 6-2 in the final.

Kobelt, a sophomore, and Engel, a junior, had a more suspenseful ride with two come-from-behind wins. They won the final 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 over Devin McCarthy and Vinod Mahalingam of Indian Hill in a rematch of the 2006 final. The Indian Hill duo beat Kobelt and Ryan Dodd last year.

It is the first time since 1990 that Franklin County schools swept both Division II titles.

Will Petrie of Columbus Academy placed third in Division II singles, the same finish he had last season.

Warren took control of his final right from the start. He broke Andrew McCarthy's serve in the first game, one of five he won. He knew exactly when to charge the net or to sit back and volley.
