3A boys' tennis: Juan Diego, Desert Hills share lead
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The final day of the Class 3A boys' tennis state tournament promises to be a dogfight.

Juan Diego and Desert Hills enter the second day with nine points apiece after Friday's first two rounds in St. George.

The Soaring Eagle advanced all three singles players and their No. 2 doubles team to the semifinals. Desert Hills moved on two singles players and both doubles teams.

Snow Canyon is lurking in third place with seven points, only two behind the leaders.

Juan Diego's Kempin brothers moved on at Nos. 1 and 2 singles to pace the Soaring Eagle. Brendan only dropped one game in his two No. 1 singles matches, while Ryan dropped two in his two No. 2 singles matches.

The semifinals will go a long way toward determining the state champion. Desert Hills and Juan Diego lock up in three semifinals — Nos. 1 and 2 singles and No. 2 doubles.

Desert Hills junior Clay Hardy will square off with junior Brendan Kempin at No. 1 singles, while junior Micha Gaelwiler will face freshman Ryan Kempin at No. 2 singles. Senior Nick Fuller and junior Dylan Zeiger of Juan Diego will face Desert Hills juniors Preston Parmenter and Ryan McGinnis at No. 2 doubles.

Action is scheduled to begin after an 8:30 a.m. court assignment meeting Saturday at Green Valley in St. George. —
