The Colorado Academy Boys Varsity Tennis Team won the State Championship Title at the 4A Tournament in Pueblo this weekend. The team made CA proud by breaking numerous records. For the first time in the school’s history, all seven positions advanced to the finals. The team took advantage of this opportunity and won in six positions in the final round, including at #1 singles, which CA has never won at the State tournament.
CA easily gained the State’s 4A title over Niwot (2nd), Cheyenne Mountain (3rd) and Kent (4th). Head of School Dr. Mike Davis praises the team’s hard work. “I’m so proud of our Boys Tennis Team for their state championship. They pulled together as a team and represented the best of CA through their sportsmanship.”
He continues, “I also want to commend our coach Brian Singer. Brian has worked so hard over the years building a quality program. He cares deeply about his players. The kids obviously earned this tremendous accomplishment, but Brian provided the framework and culture that enables this historic success.”
CA’s dominance was implemented by Richter Jordaan (#1 singles winner), Clark Steinhauser (#2 singles winner), Braeden Thomas (#3 singles winner), Caleb Aguirre and Emmet Ela (#1 doubles winners), Nicholas Dietrich and Will Smart (#2 doubles winners), Zach Brinker and Bennett Liu (#3 doubles finalists) and Ryan Gaghen and Will Miller (#4 doubles winners) along with Head Coach Brian Singer (assisted by coaches Chris Mease, Doug Robinson, and Stephen Webster).
“It’s been great to watch the progression through the years,” says Director of Athletics Bill Hall. “Brian and his team are an example of resilience and hard work. We, as a community, should be proud of their accomplishments and drive. For Richter and the other seniors, I’m especially excited. They’ve had tremendous careers at Colorado Academy.”
