HIGHLAND | Crown Point's Dominic Peretin felt good Saturday afternoon, because he helped the Times No. 2 Bulldogs win the 38th annual Highland Doubles Tournament.
Peretin and Carson Hoogewerf defeated Lowell's Ben Roesel and Jayson Savich 6-2, 6-2 for the No. 1 doubles crown.
"We felt great going into this," Peretin said. "We had a couple tough matches against Wheeler (earlier in the invite), but we felt good about the win at the end."
The Bulldogs swept the four divisions of the doubles tournament to win with 24 points. Times No. 3 Chesterton (17) placed second with 17 points, and the hosts finished third with 14.
"We're happy with this season," said Peretin, whose No. 1 doubles tandem's lone loss was to Penn earlier in the year. "We're undefeated as a team overall."
Lowell's Savich was already looking to Monday's meet with Crown Point, and the chance to meet Hoogewerf and Peretin again.
"I felt like we did good as a team," Savich said. "But we have a lot of stuff we can work on to get better."
In the No. 2 doubles final, Crown Point's Boris Pavlovski and Brendan Ray won 6-4, 6-1 against Chesterton's Johny Mario and Dylan Jayasuriya. Ray and Pavlovski improved their overall No. 2 doubles record to 14-0.
"We've played this tournament three years in a row," Pavlovski said. "Every time we've played it, we've won. So, that's good. We just have great team chemistry. It feels good to get another win under our belt."
Mario and Jayasuriya usually participate as singles players for the Trojans, but they took a crash course playing together on Friday.
"We played for like an hour," Jayasuriya said. "We're pretty new to it. Trial and error right now. After a while, we started getting used to it, and we started playing well together."
Crown Point's Bryce Bonin and Lance Noerenberg won the No. 3 doubles final 6-1, 6-1 over Chesterton's Tom McGue and Chris Fouts. Bulldogs' Anthony Kendall and Trevor Gray won the No. 4 finals 6-1, 7-5 over Highland's Brett Sabo and Anthony Kowalkowski.
