Leading off today:
Oyster Bay senior Patrick Maloney
and Geneva sophomore Ryan Fishback
will meet for the singles championship Saturday in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association buys tennis tournament.
Maloney recovered from a slow start to earn a 6-3, 6-2 win over Ethan Jacobs of Clarkstown North in the semifinals Friday at the USTA National Tennis Center.
"It was a tough match and it took long for me to end it," Maloney said. "He saved three match points and then a couple more on his serve and then finally I was able to close it out. I think the match being tough to the end will help prepare me even more for the final."
Fishback, a semifinalist a year ago, defeated Liam Krall of Bronxville 6-4, 6-3 in the semifinals.
The doubles final will match Charlie Levinson and Connor Aylett of Mamaroneck against Luke Smith and Nikolay Sahakyan of Scarsdale. The Mamaroneck tandem scored a 6-4, 6-2 win in the semifinals over 2017 tournament finalists Kenta Togo and Spencer Lowitz of Horace Greeley.
Marathon victory: Cade Dick delivered a bases-loaded single to score Sam Murphy as top-seeded St. Joe's edged Lancaster St. Mary's 3-2 in 14 innings Friday in the Monsignor Martin baseball semifinals.
It was the completion of a game suspended by bad weather Thursday in the fifth inning and gave St. Joe's a 2-1 series victory and a place in the finals against St. Francis beginning Monday at Coca-Cola Field. St. Mary's was leading 2-1 when the contest was suspended, and Nick Falbo drove in the trying run Friday in the sixth inning.
Murphy led off the 14th with a single. A pair of walks loaded the bases for Dick with one out.
Alex Repczynski scattered two hits and struck out five over five innings of work to pick up the win following four innings of one-hit relief by Alex D'Anniballe.
CHSAA boys golf: Connor MacDonald of St. Joe's fired a 72 to win the New York State Catholic High School Athletic Association championship Friday at James Baird State Park in Poughkeepsie.
Jacob Mertz of St. Joe's was the 2017 tournament champion.
