Graham earns runner-up spots in tournaments
Pecos High School tennis player Trent Graham advanced to the finals of
two recent tournaments held in Lubbock and San Antonio.
Graham reached the title match in his division last month at the USTA-sponsored
Highway 80 Championship Junior Major Zone, held in Lubbock, going 3-1 in
his matches. He defeated Derek Aceredo of Lubbock, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1; Daniel
Frid of Dallas, 6-2, 6-1; and another Dallas player, Nick Monier, 6-1, 6-3,
before falling in the tournament finals to a third Dallas area player, Patrick
Fogiel of Highland Park, 6-2, 6-4.
The second place finish qualified Graham for the super-championship level
of the USTA.
This past week in the Alamo City Super Championships in San Antonio, Graham
also went 3-1, falling to another Dallas area player in the championship
match. He defeated Terence Nolan of San Antonio, 6-4, 6-3; Manuel Saenz of
New Braunfels, 6-2, 6-4; and Tomak Czernuszewicz of Miissouri City, 6-2,
6-3, before falling in the title match, 6-3, 6-1, to A.J. Nouri of Richardson.
Graham won the District 2-4A singles title this past spring, advancing
to the Region I-4A Tournament before falling to No. 1 seed Andrew Ulrich
of Wichita Falls Rider in the tournament quarterfinals.
