Friday's rain relay at the annual county tennis tournament means things won't be finished Saturday as originally planned. And when the matches begin Saturday morning at Liberty High School, who gets on the court in what order is anyone's guess.
All of the top seeds are still alive after most of the first two rounds were completed Friday between Liberty and South Carroll high schools. The rain stopped play for a few hours and the boys doubles matches fell behind, which means the final won't be played until Monday.
Plus, some semifinalists are scheduled to take the SATs in the morning, which would delay their matches until later in the day.
In boys singles, Westminster's Mark Hardesty, the No. 1 seed, takes on Century's Eric Samuels in one semifinal while Manchester Valley's Chris Magee awaits his semifinal opponent Saturday morning.
Century's Paige Olson, the top seed in girls singles, is set to face Liberty's Natalie Naused in a semifinal match, along with Westminster's Maddie Davis and Liberty's Megan Soderlund in the other matchup.
Top-seeded Lauren Williams and Grace McCarthy of Liberty are in a girls doubles semifinal against Century's Taylor Langley and Jess Curto. The other semifinal features Liberty's Katie Klasmeier and Jenna Kobett against South Carroll's Haley Terpening and Katie Leyton.
In one mixed doubles semifnial, No. 1 seed Bryan Gieselman and Amanda Fewster of Winters Mill take on MV's Brad Davidson and Emily McDonald, while SC's Kevin Johnson and Darian Naill play Westminster's Brandon Smith and Sara Bucacink in the other semifinal match.
Liberty's A.J. Robbins and Andy Boyer are playing WM's Mike Popielski and Sebastian Cuenca in one semifinal. Westminster's Anour Esa and Corey Fishman are in the other semi, but they have to wait for the winner of Liberty's Matt Hardesty and Brian Bartholomew vs. Dan Woo and Sam Price before they can get underway.
Saturday's matches are slated to start at 9 a.m.
