CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The Petersburg Vikings got out the brooms and swept their way to Region II tennis championships, the girls notching a three-point margin of victory and the boys winning first place in a tie-breaker on Saturday.
Individually, Kelsie Roby was a region champion in singles and in doubles to lead the Petersburg girls. She won the No. 1 singles title and teamed with Kelsey Self to win the No. 1 doubles championship.
The Lady Vikings won the 11-team regional with 18 points. Keyser was runner-up with 15. Moorefield was fourth with nine and Frankfort eighth with five.
The Petersburg boys nearly swept singles play, as Ankur Makani (No. 2), Max Roth (No. 3) and Brandon Kimble (No. 4) all won region championships.
Petersburg and Lincoln tied for first place with 17 points, and Petersburg won the tie-breaker by having more individual champions.
In the girls tournament, Roby beat Haley Foster of Keyser in the No. 1 singles semifinal and Allie Yoho of R.C. Byrd in the final by 8-1 scores.
Roby and Self defeated Hill and Taylor England of Grafton 8-2 in the No. 1 doubles final.
Petersburg’s Madison Brake and Maggie Canoy lost in the No. 3 doubles final to Byrd’s Wrenna Dorrer and Paige Boram 9-8 (7-4).
In the boys tournament, Petersburg’s Makani beat Ezra Calef of Byrd 8-3 in the No. 2 final; Roth downed Daniel Lewis of Keyser in the No. 3 final, 8-4; and Kimble took the No. 4 singles final by beating Moorefield’s Jacob Fisher 8-4.
Roth and Kimble finished second in the No. 2 doubles, losing to Lewis and Travis Martin of Keyser 8-0. The Roth/Kimble team won the clinching point for the Vikings by storming back from a 7-2 deficit for a 9-7 win over a Bridgeport team in the No. 2 doubles quarterfinal.
