Everyone loves an underdog story.

Originally projected to have only two of its pairings qualify for State, Lake Forest Varsity Tennis is sending four teams to the tournament after a dominating performance at Sectionals.

The State tournament starts Thursday at John Hersey High School. Seniors Will Zordani and Oleksyi Vyshyvanyuk and  junior Will Ortell and sophomore David Chong will represent the Scouts in the doubles category. Meanwhile, sophomore Vishvam Bhagat and freshman Sahil Conjeevarem will headline the royal blue and gold in the singles department.

“Scott (Gilbert) and I had great faith in the whole team, and they have been working hard to prepare. Not only did they qualify, but they dominated in the qualifying round matches. We look forward to an impressive showing at State,” coach Corky Leighton said.
