On Friday morning the Division III Tennis Championships began with nine Bears competing against the best from League V and VI.

After winning a match on Friday and two more matches on Saturday, Brandon Gicquel and Steven Ou earned a spot in the Doubles Championship, set for 3pm today at Mt Sinai High School. The pair were seeded second overall, earning a first round bye. In the second round they bested teammates Alan Wang and Andy Liu, who fought valiantly but came up short, 4-6, 4-6. In Saturday’s quarterfinals Gicquel and Ou faced Sachem’s #2 team of Filipkowski/LaRosa and prevailed, 6-1, 7-5. In the semifinals they faced Ward Melville’s #1 doubles pairing of Ancona/Benanti and dispatched them, 7-5, 6-4, to earn a berth in today’s final.

In the singles tournament, Pratik Harjani bested Bayport-Blue Point’s #3 singles player, Milo Fallon (6-1, 6-0) before falling to the second overall seed in the second round. 8th-seeded Wensan Yin earned a place in the County Championship by defeating Miller Place #2, J. P. Gannon (6-1, 6-0), in the first round and Port Jeff #3, Jack O’Connor (6-1, 6-2) before falling to the #1 overall seed from Ward Melville in three sets, 6-2, 6-7, 1-6.

Gicquel and Ou will face Sachem’s #1 overall seeded Syron/Russello later this afternoon.
