The Warren boys’ tennis team swept Kennedy Catholic, 5-0, Monday at Betts Park to repeat as Region 1 champions.
The decisive win struggled a bit in District 10’s singles eliminations on Saturday.
“Every boy on the team has contributed to college wins this year,” said Warren’s trainer Travis Myler. “Looking forward to continued success in the future. (Coach) Thomas (Pellegrino) and I are proud of our record and look forward to the District 10 doubles and team competitions on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

Warren finished undefeated in regional play at 8-0.
