Boys Tennis: Caleb and Luke Fridinger advance to state as a double duo

After the team section tournament concluded, the singles and doubles section tournament began with competition starting last Friday and finishing on Tuesday. The tournament had a handful of players from East Ridge, Woodbury and Park.

After day one, last Friday, East Ridge was the only team left with players fighting for a spot at the state tournament as senior Elias Ramirez played in the singles tournament and sophomore Caleb Fridinger and eighth grader Luke Fridinger in the doubles tournament.

Ramirez came up just short as he finished in third, which didn't result in a trip to the state tournament, but the Fridinger brothers earned a second-place finish allowing them to reach the state tournament.
