Coffman top singles at Corydon Invitational

September 11, 2013 | 09:35 AM

Corydon Central hosted a boys' tennis invitational Saturday but was one event short of completing the event before darkness set.

Before losing sunlight, however, Corydon Central's top singles player, Quinton Coffman, cruised through three matches to earn top honors in his division.

In pool play matches, Coffman defeated South Central's Parker Gabhart 6-4, 6-4 then rolled past New Washington's Jake Zimmerman 6-2, 6-0. Squaring off against Borden's Josh Vollstedt in the championship, Coffman won the pro-set 8-1.

Gabhart would bounce back to defeat Zimmerman 6-1, 6-1 before taking third place with an 8-4 win over Floyd Central's Patrick Hines.

Coffman wasn't the lone champion for Corydon Central on the day. The No. 1 doubles team of Jeremy Buess and Nick Keith earned the title by beating Paoli 8-2 in the final. En route to the final, Buess and Keith teamed to defeat pairs from South Central (6-1, 6-2) and New Washington (6-1, 6-0).

Team standings were led by Corydon Central with 34 points, followed by Paoli (17), Floyd Central (10) and South Central (10). The one match that didn't get completed was the No. 3 singles championship between Borden's Kamden Hurst and New Washington's Miles Matthews. Going into the match, Borden had 32 points and New Washington 15.

Corydon Central was able to reach the finals in No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles but were defeated by Borden in each. No. 2 singles player Ryan Price defeated South Central's Henry Dunn 6-2, 6-0 then had a battle with New Washington's Logan Miles. The first set went to a tie-breaker that was won by Price, 7-2. Keeping the momentum, Price won the second set 6-4. The championship match, however, was won by Borden's Joseph Vollstedt 8-5.

Jumping to No. 2 doubles, Corydon Central's team of Kyle McPhillips and Jack Taylor won a pair of matches to reach the final. They blanked the team from South Central 6-0, 6-0 before handling New Washington 6-1, 6-4. Despite winning in pool play, Corydon Central dropped the first-place match to Borden 8-1.

Corydon Central will host Mid-Southern Conference foe Silver Creek tomorrow (Thursday) at 5 p.m. while the same day South Central travels to New Washington at 5.
