Nevenhoven, Park lead Auburn to second straight sectional title

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) The rain held off just long enough Saturday morning as Auburn defended its home courts by winning its second straight sectional championship.

Senior Quinten Nevenhoven cruised to the singles title, dropping just two sets the entire tournament. Sophomore Chris Park did his part and won the third place singles match against Hononegah's Thomas Ptacin. That win gave Auburn the needed point to claim the title.

Harlem's Lucas Crane and Anthony Buffington won the doubles bracket in three sets against Hononegah's Jason Dupont and Adam He. It's the first time the Huskies won a doubles sectional title in Bill Dredge's 43 years as head coach.
