JACKSONVILLE –
The Donoho boys tennis team, like its girls counterpart, won the Class 1A-2A-3A Section 4 championship for the fourth straight year.
 
The Falcons won three of the six singles divisions and two of the three doubles draws Tuesday at Jacksonville State to finish with 50 points. Sylvania was second with 37 points.
 
Donoho junior Cooper Montgomery was the top player in the section for the third straight year. He defeated Sylvania’s Jared Higgins, 6-1, 6-1, to win No. 1 Singles. Montgomery teamed with Gray Hanley to claim the No. 1 Doubles title, winning 6-0, 6-1 over Sylvania’s Higgins and Mason Sanders in the finals.
 
Donoho’s Harrison Han and Hanley and Sylvania’s Wilks also were dual champions.
 
“I have worked hard this year and it is cool to win sectionals and for both our teams to win sectionals and go to state,” said Han, unbeaten at No. 2 singles this season. “It was very tiring out there. I played like 10 sets out there today and doubles and singles. I had a bye in singles and did not start playing until the afternoon so it all happened back-to-back.”
 
The Falcons and Sylvania will play in the state tournament April 22-23 in Montgomery.
