Imhoof into district semifinals

By: Selinsgrove Athletics | PIAA District IV | May 9, 2022

WILLIAMSPORT — Top-seed Eddie Monaco of Lewisburg and Selinsgrove's Austin Imhoff had little issue on Monday reaching the semifinals of the District 4 boys tennis tournament at Williamsport High School.

Imhoof, a sophomore, is the only non top-four seed to make the semifinals. Imhoof, the No. 5-seed, beat No. 4-seed Jared Matalack in the quarterfinals, 6-2, 7-5.

Imhoof had little problems in his first-round match with Rein Alderfer of Towanda, who beat Milton's Trace Witter in the opening round, 6-4, 6-2. Imhoof beat Alderfer, 6-4, 6-2.

Monaco dropped just six games in his two matches — beating Bryce Hazzard of Central Columbia, 6-0, 6-2, and Logan Ogden of South Williamsport, 6-4, 6-0.

Monaco and Imhoof didn't meet during the regular season as the Seals and Green Dragons didn't meet in a match this season.

The other semifinals will pit No. 2-seed Jordan Baker of Central Columbia against No. 3-seed Jackson Stemler of Jersey Shore.

Both semifinal winners advance to the state tournament on Memorial Day weekend at the Hershey Racquet Club.
