CROWN POINT | With the favored host Crown Point in the opposite bracket, Lake Central is taking it one step at a time at the boys tennis sectional.

The Indians (9-4) cleared the first hurdle with a 4-1 win over Kankakee Valley (6-11) in the opening match on Wednesday.

“We just have to focus on what’s right now and play each point one at a time and stop focusing on what we need to do in the future,” said L.C.’s Chase Owczarzak, who teamed with John Mamelson to win at No. 2 doubles.

K.V.’s Luke Sanderson won as expected at No. 1 singles with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over T.J. Ruzga. L.C.’s Luke Oboy defeated Anthony Zupetti 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2 singles, while Jimmy Lafakis defeated Kyle Banaszak 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles.

Mamelson-Owczarzak won in straight sets, and Kenneth Crawford and Eric Shrader beat Cameron Fritts and Hunter DeHaan 6-1, 6-0 at No. 1 doubles.

“The doubles came through, and we played within ourselves,” L.C. coach Dave Cafmeyer said. “The same can be said about all our singles positions, too.

“T.J. went up against a very, very talented player.”

Sanderson advances to the sectional individual competition at next week’s team regional at Munster.

“Lake Central is tough team, but we definitely gave it our best efforts today,” said K.V. coach Katee Sanderson, Luke’s sister. “I’m really happy with everyone on the team. They all did their best all season long. They all worked hard and kept getting better. Luke gets to move on, and that’s kind of what he was looking for.”

L.C. advances to play Lowell today, while C.P. faces Rensselaer. The winners play for the championship immediately following the semifinals.

“It will be a match, but we’ll just have to play confident,” Mamelson said.
