Jesuit boys win Class 6A state tennis crown, set scoring record
It's not easy to do something that hasn't been done before by the Jesuit boys tennis team.
But that's just what the Crusaders did on Saturday. They swept the 2018 singles and doubles titles, captured their third straight state championship and their 10th in the past 11 seasons, setting a big-school state tournament team scoring record with 38 points, eclipsing the previous record of 36 set back in 1969 by Roseburg. The 6A state tournament was held Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Babette Horenstein Tennis Center (formerly Tualatin Hills) in Beaverton.
In singles play, Jesuit sophomore Peter Murphy battled past Westview senior Luke Lemaitre for a second straight season, this time beating his Metro League foe 6-4, 6-1.
