Saint Xavier Boys Win Kentucky State Championship

Congratulations to Saint Xavier who won their fifth straight Kentucky Boys State Championship! The Tigers outscored their four opponents 12-0 to finish the dual match tournament undefeated and claim their 22nd overall state title. Saint Xavier senior and Alabama signee Sean Donohue led the Tigers to the state championship before turning over the reins to fellow senior Parker Thieneman and sophomores Brandon Lancaster, Nick Quinones and Liam Friel who capped off the team championship with a 3-0 win over Lone Oak. The Tigers also dominated the individual tournament placing seniors Zachary Kuo and Parker Theineman and underclassmen Coleman Cox and Nick Waldeck in the Doubles State Championship. Kuo/Thieneman prevailed 6-3, 6-2 in the all-Tigers finale to give St. X their seventh doubles title since 2000. Defending State Champion Sean Donohue advanced to the singles semi-finals and sophomore Brandon Lancaster finished the year with a runner-up finish in the Singles State Championship.
