Monday, October 10, 2016


The Lone Peak Boys season will begin with tryouts on February 27th and 28th. A player meeting will be held in January.


The Lone Peak Girls Tennis team completed another successful season, winning the Region Championship for the 12th time in the last 13 years. Varsity and Junior Varsity girls did not drop a single match in Region play this year. At the Varsity Region tournament, all five positions garnered #1 seeds for the State tournament, while the Junior Varsity got big wins in the Region JV tournament. In the JV tournament Annabelle Nielsen won the 1st singles division. In doubles, Anna Peterson and Zoie Black won 1st doubles, while Ava Curtis and Aubrie Aagard won in 2nd doubles and Sydney Allen and Reese Curtis won in 3rd doubles.
At the State tournament, Daniela Aaron represented the Knights well, getting all the way to the final before losing to the States 4 time champions. Anna Aaron battled her way to the semifinals as did Joslin Seaberg at 3rd singles before they lost in two hard fought matches. The Knights two doubles teams had magic going for the tournament as Rachel Neeleman and Cami Gricius took the first doubles State Championship and Ellie Slighting and Katie King won the 2nd doubles State Championship. For Rachel and Cami it was all about adding suspense to their title as they played 6 sets of tennis on the final day, playing for over 5 hours before being victorious. At 2nd doubles, Ellie and Katie found themselves in a 'zone' in the championship match winning 6-1, 6-0 in about an hour. The doubles wins coupled with the singles wins allowed the Knights to take 2nd place overall at State, narrowly losing to Davis High School.

After finishing the first day tied with Brighton, the Lone Peak boys tennis team went on to sweep its semifinal matches, win all three singles titles and finish second in both doubles brackets to best the Bengals 26-18 and secure LONE PEAKS first-ever state championship!

The match that proved to be the critical turning point for the Knights was the semifinal in No. 1 singles, where seniors Brocton Andrus of Lone Peak and Chase Stoner of Brighton battled it out for a spot in the final. The BYU-bound Andrus made quick work of University of Utah recruit Stoner, eliminating him 6-2, 6-2 to help move Lone Peak ahead by a precious two points at 18-16. He went on to win his team’s final individual title, as well, as he defeated Viewmont’s Jack Taylor 6-1, 6-1.

In No. 2 singles, the coveted prize went to Brocton’s younger brother, sophomore Brigham Andrus, who defeated Brighton junior Jared Mansell 6-1, 6-4.

In third singles, sophomore Micah Heimuli outlasted Bengal senior Mitchell Mansell 7-5, 6-4. Last year, he fell in the final to Jared Mansell 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-4). “It feels amazing, especially after the tight loss last time,” he said.

The 2 Knights Doubles teams both lost tough close matches in the finals but their overall points in the tournament were critical to the teams championship.

The championship match of the day came in No. 1 doubles,  where American Fork seniors Spencer Wood and Braden Condie prevailed in a well-played marathon 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 over Lone Peak seniors Bryan Gricius and Dallin Carrier.

The final match of the day was another lengthy battle, this one at No. 2 doubles between Knight sophomores Niles Cochran and Josh Bearss and Bengals Cannon Mansell and Jake Fisher. The Brighton duo won 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-5).

“To watch the guys come through and win this team championship is just special,” he said. “In the big picture, everyone contributed points, and that’s huge.
“My assistant coach, Roger Baumgartner, worked with our doubles teams and did some amazing things as Coach to get them ready for the tournament'.
