Diaz and Upper Arlington repeat in Div. II singles and Div. I
HILLIARD, Ohio – A pair of 2010 winners repeated as champions and two
new champions were crowned at the 2011 OHSAA boys state tennis
tournament on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Hilliard Davidson High
School. The tournament site was moved to Hilliard due to construction
being done on The Ohio State University’s Stickney Tennis Center.
Chris Diaz, a senior from Columbus Bishop Watterson, won the Division II
singles championship, defeating Ian Wagner of Columbus Wellington School

Also winning a championship for the second year in a row was the
Division I doubles team from Upper Arlington, as senior Billy Weldon and
sophomore Stu Little defeated Miguel Cepeda and Luke Tsai of Mason 6-3,
6-1. The win gives Upper Arlington its state-best 16th doubles
championship. Weldon and Little became only the 10th two-time doubles
champions in OHSAA state tournament history, regardless of division.
