Sidwell Friends, St Albans boys tennis win conference titles

As afternoon settled on the St. Albans campus Thursday evening, a growing crowd slowly made its way to the tennis court where the No. 2 doubles match was being played. There, Bulldogs duo Mert Uyumazturk and Alexandru Dragoi were involved in a battle with Landon’s Caleb Wade and Soli Ravitz.

The crowd knew that with a win, Uyumazturk and Dragoi could clinch the Interstate Athletic Conference title, and their eagerness added an extra intensity to the match. It ended when Uyumazturk hit a serve up the middle for an ace, giving St. Albans a 4-1 team victory over the Bears and the program’s fourth consecutive conference title.
