GREENVILLE — Union County was successfully represented during the North-South Tennis Classic over the weekend.
Andrew Adamo was the first player in UCHS school history to be selected for the North-South Boys Tennis Classic, which was held Friday and Saturday at the Krock Tennis Center in Greenville.
Adamo finished his high school tennis career with the most single wins in school history with a 69-14 record. He was named All-Region 2010-2014, and he tied for most wins this season with a record of 15-3.
The weekend’s tournament pitted the North team versus the South team, with the South team winning 8-1.
Adamo contributed to the South team’s eight wins, winning singles 6-1, 6-0 and doubles — along with teammate Jay Karwatsky — in a score of 8-3. The complete results are as follows:
Lukas Zalesky (S) def. Barrett Hardy 6-4, 6-2
Noah Stiepel (S) def. Dalton Hendrix 6-0, 6-3
Austin MacMillan (N) def. Jay Karwatsky 6-3, 6-1
Wesley Gregory (S) def. Erik Lewis 6-0, 6-0
Andrew Adamo (S) def. Matthew Brautigam 6-0, 6-0
Will Thomas (S) def. Jacob Vargo 6-1, 6-0
Zalesky/Stiepel (S) def. Hardy/Hendrix 8-4
Gregory/Thomas (S) def. Brautigam/Lewis 8-0
Karwatsky/Adamo (S) def. Vargo/MacMillan 8-3
The North team was led by head coach Todd Seagle and assistant coach Sam Napier, and the South team was led by head coach Jason Loudenslager and assistant coach Brian Hennecy.
“This was a lot of fun meeting all these guys and playing with and against some of the best players in the state,” Adamo said. “There were probably four D-1 and several D-2 players on both rosters.”
Adamo said he was impressed by the No. 2 and No. 3 players in the state — teammates at Bishop England High School in Daniel Island — who were on his team.
“It is somewhat sad to know this was my last high school match, but it was an awesome way to finish out my high school career,” Adamo said, adding that he is thankful for all the support he received from faculty and staff at Union County High School.
