Falcons Enter DVC Tourney with Slight Edge

With most of the weekend conference tennis tournaments, there's little doubt about the prospective winners. For Hinsdale Central and Downers Grove South, the biggest concern is clearing space in the trophy case.

The DuPage Valley Conference tournament is completely different. Even the coaches involved weren't sure where the top four teams stood before Wednesday's seeding meeting.

Wheaton North has 41 points after finishing the dual season 7-0, but leads Naperville Central by just 4 points. Naperville North (36) and Wheaton Warrenville South (34) also are in close contention.

"The key thing is (that) we need to win every first-round match," said Wheaton North coach Wes Dusek. "If we do that, it will settle us down. Any kind of equality makes kids a little bit nervous and tense."

Competition at first singles figures to be tension-packed, despite South's Tim Kniffin's perfect dual mark. Jim Borendame of Wheaton North, Andy Suarez of Glenbard East and James Juarez of Naperville North could challenge.

The third slots in both singles and doubles could determine the DVC champion.

The meet opens Friday at 3:30 p.m. with preliminaries in singles at Naperville North and doubles at Central. Finals are 9 a.m. Saturday at North.

Hinsdale Central seeks coach Jay Kramer's 15th West Suburban Silver title in the meet at Downers Grove North. Central enters the meet with 39 points and probably won't wait long to clinch the title.

"If we win in the first round, I don't think anyone can catch us," Kramer said.
