The last time the boys tennis teams from La Cueva and Eldorado were sharing courts, the differences between the two were minuscule.
That was not the case Saturday.
The Bears won a crucial match at No. 3 doubles, and had victories in singles at No. 2, No. 4 and No. 6 as La Cueva won the Class 6A state championship, 5-1 over the Eagles on a warm afternoon at the Jerry Cline complex.
“It was a great way to go out as a senior,” said Kyler Kunzler, who won his match at No. 2 singles over Elias Samaha and also teamed with sophomore Julian Lee to win in straight sets in No. 1 doubles. “I couldn’t have asked for a better team this year.”
