State Tournament Recap

Diaz and Upper Arlington repeat in Div. II singles and Div. I doubles, respectively

HILLIARD, Ohio – A pair of 2010 winners repeated as champions and two new champions were crowned at the 2011 OHSAA boys state tennis tournament on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Hilliard Davidson High School. The tournament site was moved to Hilliard due to construction being done on The Ohio State University’s Stickney Tennis Center.

Chris Diaz, a senior from Columbus Bishop Watterson, won the Division II singles championship, defeating Ian Wagner of Columbus Wellington School 6-1, 6-0. It was the second consecutive singles state title for Diaz who, for the second year in a row, also won without losing a set in any of his matches. Diaz was also a Division I doubles champion in 2008 and a doubles runner-up in 2009.

Also winning a championship for the second year in a row was the Division I doubles team from Upper Arlington, as senior Billy Weldon and sophomore Stu Little defeated Miguel Cepeda and Luke Tsai of Mason 6-3, 6-1. The win gives Upper Arlington its state-best 16th doubles championship. Weldon and Little became only the 10th two-time doubles champions in OHSAA state tournament history, regardless of division.

In the Division II doubles competition, seniors Lou Konstan and Alex Aleman of Cuyahoga Falls Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy were 6-1, 6-4 victors over John Kidd and Alex Swick of Lima Central Catholic. The win marks the CVCA duo’s second Division II doubles state championship in three years, having also won in 2009. Konstan and Aleman are the 11th two-time doubles champions in OHSAA State tournament history, regardless of division.

Toledo St. John’s Jesuit senior Evan Bechtel won the Division I singles state championship, defeating Zach Mueck of Liberty Township Lakota East 6-3, 1-6, 6-3. Bechtel successfully transitioned into this year’s singles tournament pool after competing in the state doubles tournament in 2010. Mueck, a junior, also finished as Division I runner-up last year.
