Tennis Teams Capture District Titles
The Falcons boys and girls tennis teams dominated the 1A-District 9 tennis tournament (April 15-16) at the Payne Park Tennis Center in Sarasota, winning all four doubles titles and nine of 10 singles to advance to regional play. The boys (Kevin Jiang, Max Damm, Gleb Ibragimov, Max Bonte and Max Petrov) registered a complete sweep to capture their first district championship since 2017. The girls (Paradise Traub, Laura Perazzolo, Maria Petrova, Autumn Sun and Ella Dalzell) won every match but No. 5 singles to defend their crown. St. Petersburg Shorecrest (boys) and Cardinal Mooney (girls) finished a distant second in the tournament to also advance. The Falcons will host regionals next Tuesday and Thursday (April 23 and 25).
