Good showing for Davis tennis players at SJS tourney

ROCKLIN — Davis High’s qualifiers for the Sac-Joaquin Section boys tennis individual tournament — junior Dan Segedin in singles and Louis Pak/David Wang in doubles — each took care of business in the early rounds on Thursday and Friday at Rocklin High.

Then, both ran into buzz saws from Jesuit — Segedin in the second round and junior Pak/sophomore Wang in the semifinals.

In doubles, the fourth-seeded Blue Devil duo took down a Rocklin squad, 6-4, 7-6, before getting past a team from Lodi, 6-2, 6-3.

“They played like a couple of really good singles players (which is what they are, as opposed to some of the teams who play doubles together often),” Hersch said. “They were just way better than the guys on those other teams.”

Even in falling 6-1, 6-2 to Jesuit’s Robert Fretz and Avery Moore — the No. 1 seed — in the semis, Hersch was pleased with the way Pak and Wang performed.

“They played really well,” said the Devil mentor. “They could have stayed back and maybe made the score a little closer. But the only way they were going to win was to be aggressive and they did a good job of that.”

Fritz/Moore went on to win the doubles title for the second straight season.

Segedin used his superior skills at the net to defeat Jahan Vijeh from West, 6-0, 6-3, before finding himself up against Marauder Anatoliy Beynars, the No. 2 seed. Beynars beat Segedin, 6-1, 6-2, on his way to the finals, where he lost to top-seeded Jesuit teammate Austen Huang, a freshman phenom.

“You’re going to run into a seeded guy and (this year) they were all really good,” Hersch said. “(Beynars) is just really strong, he looks like a linebacker. But Dan played him well.”

Notes: Segedin won the Delta Valley Conference singles tournament, while Pak and Wang took second at the league event. … The Blue Devils host Oak Ridge on Monday (3:30 p.m.) in the quarterfinals of the SJS team playoffs.
