Compton Tennis Tournament Results

The John Parker Compton Memorial Tennis Tournament was held from June 7-11 in Scarsdale. The Tournament has been a tradition in Scarsdale since 1945 and matches are played at the Fox Meadow Tennis Club and at the Brite Avenue tennis courts. This was the first year the tournament registration moved online and the change may have hampered sign-ups, as some were not aware the tournament was on.

The tournament is now part of the USTA which in future years should draw more players to the roster. Boys and girls ages 14-18 could sign up to play singles and doubles and many skilled players participated. There were not enough girls in the eighteen and under category for a draw, but there was good competition in all the other categories.

According to volunteer organizer Dorothy Yewer, “the boys draw was extremely competitive and the tennis was exquisite.”

Here are the final results:

Boys 18 Singles: Preston Poon defeated Austin Kaplan 6-3, 7-6; 7-6(7-5)

Boys 14 Singles: Luke Smith defeated Benjamin Goebel 6-2, 6-1

Girls 14 Singles: Christina Sisti defeated Adrienne Travis 7-5, 6-1

Boys 18 Doubles: Halpern/Poon defeated Greenwald/Somekh 6-1, 6-1
