Rain showers forced conference tennis tournaments in the area to pause early Saturday morning. But when the clouds cleared, it was clear sailing which produced some terrific play.

Here’s a look at what happened at five conference tournaments:

Central Suburban League (CSL) North:

The 1-2 punch at singles of Evan Glebov (20-3) and freshman Blake Gold (18-6) and its top doubles team of Max Rosenfeld and Ben Aizenberg (17-6) was not enough for Highland Park to hold off Deerfield who won the CSL North crown at host Maine West.

The Warriors would edge the Giants 17.5-16, with Vernon Hills earning third place honors with 11.5.

“We received some good play all throughout the brackets with our freshman Aarvish Vora finishing second at No. 2 singles, another second-place finish at 2-dubs (Tony Pomeranets-Daniel Shchebalev) and a pair of thirds from our Nos. 1 and 3 doubles teams today,” said Vernon Hills coach Doug Gerber, whose Cougars will be the favorites at its own 2A sectional which begins Friday morning.

Maine West senior George Ciuca (15-5) would claim third overall at No. 1 singles after his straight-set (6-2, 6-2) win over Rohit Dashaputra of Vernon Hills.

CSL South:

New Trier once again rolled to yet another CSL South title at Niles West, with Maine South runner-up to the Trevians.

The Hawks’ dynamic doubles duo of Marko Czosnyka-Jack Belconis, who were anointed the top seed at No. 1, dropped a heartbreaking three-set match to eventual champions Will Feeley-Jack Rivkin from New Trier in the semifinals, before going on to take home a third-place medal.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

“We came out and played a great first set, but (New Trier) changed to the I-formation in the second set, and it took us awhile to adjust,” said Belconis, who along with Czosnyka were state singles qualifiers a year ago.

“So we did not play well in our second set, and in the third, we got it back to a tiebreaker, but when a great passing shot made it 6-5, that was it for us.”

The Hawks, who dropped their semifinal to New Trier, 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (5), came back to beat Glenbrook South (Ter-Saakyants-Denizov) 7-5, 6-2.

East Suburban Catholic Conference:

Benet Academy easily won its seventh consecutive ESCC title, and 18th in program history, when it swept all five flights to outscore runner-up Carmel Catholic, 40-28, and third-place Nazareth Academy, which finished with 21 overall points.

St. Viator, led by third-place medals at No. 1 singles, Michael McManahan, and its No. 2 doubles team Charlie Bullock-Phil …….
