Tennis players shine in Wyoming

— A pack of top, young Steamboat Springs tennis players pieced together a big weekend of results at a tournament in Laramie, Wyoming, last weekend.

The group, playing at the ITA Wyoming District Cup Junior Indoor Championships, was led by Mae Thorp, who ran through the girls 12-year-old singles division to win the round-robin format, edging out a strong performance in the same division by teammate Noelle Cerone.

Another top performance came from Tommy Regan, who finished second in the boys 10-year-old singles category. In the boys 10 doubles division Steamboat had another championship as Tommy Regan and Nate Holdeman teamed up to win.

Cedar Turek, meanwhile, was sharp as well, placing second in the 12 and under division.

Andy Schuiling drove to the finals in the boys 14 division while Wyatt Stempel, Theo Holdeman, Ethan Paulus and John Hanaway played well there in singles.

Stempel and Paulus then teamed up to win the doubles division.

Annika Fahrner went as far as the quarterfinals in the girls 14s and Lily Fox played also well there. Cerone and Fox finished second in the girls 14 doubles division.

At the boys 16 age group, Charlie Smith and Troy DeJong picked up several wins.

“The kids were awfully proud,” said the Tennis Center at Steamboat’ Springs’ Loretta Conway. “This was a high level tournament. It wasn’t a weak tournament and the kids played well.”
