Big Spring Herald Weekend - - SPORTS - By SHAWN MORAN Her­ald Sportswrit­er

FOR­SAN — It was an im­pres­sive show­ing for the For­san tennis team at their home courts on Fri­day. The Buf­faloes won three out of five events and dis­played team-wide strength in their sec­ond var­sity meet of the sea­son. “It's a good day to be a Buf­falo,” For­san as­sis­tant coach Lloyd Ved­der said. For­san picked up their wins by sweep­ing all three dou­bles events on the day. They also fell just short in the boys and girls sin­gles bracket as Hunter Ce­val­los and An­gel Mc­caf­ferty ad­vanced all the way to the fi­nals.

The pair­ing of Ha­ley Pat­ter­son and Madison Smith went home with the girls dou­bles crown. They were able to de­feat their team­mate duo of Mal­lory Ezell and Ally Aguilar in the fi­nals. This meant that the Buf­faloes fin­ished in the top two spots of the girls dou­bles bracket.

It was a sim­i­lar story for the boys dou­bles com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day. The group­ing of Ty Moor­man and Cody Huitt de­feated Hunter Carter and Jonathon Gabehart in the fi­nals. In fact, all four semi­fi­nal pair­ings were from For­san. The Buf­faloes swept the en­tire boys dou­bles bracket as the duo of Sawyer Stallings and Thomas Gabehart won the third-place match.

Fi­nally, the mixed dou­bles crown was won by Nick Baci­galupo and Ella Hoff. They de­feated the duo of Bri­anna El­liott and JB Wright for a first-place fin­ish.

For­san started off their tennis sea­son with a bang and will look to keep build­ing on this mo­men­tum. They seem to have a deep ros­ter of tal­ented play­ers that will be able to help this squad go far.

It was a good day to be a Buf­falo.
