Queeney Wins Match at PAC Tennis Tourney
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Henry Queeney posted his first victory of the season last week against Pottsgrove. The following day, Upper Perkiomen's No. 1 tennis player rolled that into another win during the Pioneer Athletic Conference Singles Championships.

            Queeney scored a 10-4 victory over Norristown's Gael Palestino in the opening

On Monday Theo Deskevich, playing at no. 3 singles, got

a shutout over his opponent from Chistopher Dock.

round of the tournament on Thursday, April 11. The junior played with a little more aggression than usual, said head coach John Williamson.

            "When he tends to be more aggressive, his play improves," Williamson said.

            Queeney lost his second-round match at Perkiomen Valley High School to Jack Sawicki. The No. 5 seed from Owen J. Roberts registered a 10-4 victory.

            Sawicki won several points at the net. Williamson said he and Queeney strategized about keeping the opponent closer to the baseline.  "Henry played great," Willamson said. "He was very consistent. He made it respectable."

            Queeney struggled early on as the Tribe's top player. Williamson said the player struggled to find a consistent rhythm.  "It's tough when you're facing the opposition's best player in every match," the coach said.

            A 6-3, 6-1 victory over Pottsgrove's Evyn Brogley the day before seemed to invigorate Queeney, according to the coach. Queeney carried that momentum into the conference tourney.

            Steve Schmittinger lost his only match during the tournament. The Indians No. 2 player was defeated 10-3 by Phoenixville's Owen Graver.  "Steve put up a good fight," Williamson said. "[Graver] was just more consistent."

            On Monday, the Tribe posted a 6-1 non-league victory over Dock Mennonite Academy. The team swept the singles matches.

            At. No. 3 singles, Theo Deskevich shut out Billy Lin. Queeney dropped only three games against Joshiah Davidar, registering a 6-3, 6-0 victory. Schmittinger posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over Andrew Silva.

            Leo Cavallaro-Kraft and Gavin Kutt dominated at No. 4 doubles, posting a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Liam Connors and Sam Wang. At No. 2 doubles, Miles Long and Cody Groff dropped only two games in their straight set win.

            Colton Moser and Matthew Fisher added a convincing victory at No. 3 doubles. They notched a 6-1, 6-2 win over Sayed Shezhad and Eric Hand.

            On Wednesday, April 10, the Indians suffered a 4-3 loss to Pottsgrove. Queeney delivered the only singles victory.
            The Tribe won at No. 1 and No. 4 doubles. Ben Buckwalter and Alex Laubach posted a three-set victory, defeating Kaden Kelly and Curren Antonio 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
            Cavallaro-Kraft and Kutt lost only two games. They beat Paul Fabian and Ryan Stoy 6-1, 6-1.

            The Tribe is scheduled for two additional home matches this week. It is slated to take on Perkiomen Valley on Wednesday, April 17. Two days later, the seniors will be recognized prior to Friday's match against Pope John Paul II on Friday.

            Four makeup matches remain for the Indians, including three PAC opponents. The conference doubles tournament is scheduled for April 25-26 at Spring-Ford High School.
