MIDDLETOWN – Abby Podolsky had been here before – just a year ago, in fact – as Delaware high school tennis’ top seed in second singles, facing a formidable opponent from perennial power Caesar Rodney. She came in a very respectable second place in 2016, but on May 26 at St. Andrew’s School, Podolsky made sure there would be no repeat.

With CR’s Halle Parker on a different court playing for the first singles championship, Podolsky matched up with the Riders’ Natasha Sijan, the two-time defending champion at third singles. Podolsky split the first two sets with Sijan, built up a big lead in the third and deciding set before battling to a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 win. The triumph capped an undefeated season for the Archmere senior. For Sijan, the two-time defending state champion at third singles, it was her first and only loss of the season. Read more »

NEWARK – Caesar Rodney used a deep roster and multiple wins in the final round to take both the boys’ and girls’ state tennis championships, but it was a successful season for Archmere, which captured two second-place team finishes and a pair of individual titles. CR edged the Auks in the team standings, 21-20. The final round of the state tournament was staged May 26 on a hot afternoon at the University of Delaware Field House.

Robby Ward completed an unbeaten season for the Auks with a 6-4, 6-4 upset of Milford’s Colton Williamson in the first singles match. Williamson had been 14-0 coming into the tournament, while Ward was 8-0. After taking the first set, Ward built up a 5-1 lead in the second before Williamson made his move. Read more »
