— Fairmont Senior’s boys’ tennis team completed play in the Big 10 tournament on Friday and Saturday at Robert C. Byrd.

All four FSHS singles players — Grant Holbert, Logan Orton, Trey Giorcelli and Taylor Campbell — cruised to 8-0 victories to open first-round play on Friday. However, each of them fell in their matches over the next round, with Orton dropping an 8-3 decision to East Fairmont’s Brighton Kunce in No. 2 action.

Doubles play was held Saturday, and it was a similar script.

Holbert and Orton teamed for a 9-7 win and Campbell and Giorcelli nabbed an 8-5 victory in the opener, but each lost their second-round matches, with Holbert and Orton coming closest to victory in an 8-5 setback to Lincoln’s Alec Moran and John Brooks.

Regional play gets under way next Thursday in Parkersburg.
