Sam Cadavos of Matthew C. Perry made the most of his final tune-up for next month’s Far East High School Tennis Tournament, winning the DODDS Japan singles title for the second straight year, overpowering Shintaro Clanton of host Yokota 8-1 in Friday’s final.
But it wasn’t the only title for the Samurai. Gaku Lange and Sam Hess of M.C. Perry provided a “bonus,” coach Mark Lange said, as they won the doubles title 8-0 over Zama American’s York Morimoto and Anthony James.
“Fantastic. Really good,” the elder Lange said.
On the girls’ side, Monica Henry and Raena Schoeff of Kinnick won the girls doubles. Yokota’s Emily Beemsterboer rallied from down 6-7 in the final to beat Zama American’s Natalie Burke 9-7 for the singles title.
“Very exciting,” Yokota coach Tommy Palmer said of Beemsterboer, who lost the first three games and trailed most of the match. “Emily just kept on her toes and made her move.”
On the girls volleyball courts, Robin Galiano launched 13 spike kills and Seoul American swept Osan American 25-13, 25-21, 25-12 to capture the regular-season championship in the Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Conference Five-Cities Division.
