A big fish in a small pond? Perhaps.
But the title of ‘Lebanon County’s Top Scholastic Male Tennis Player’ is something that no one will ever be able to take away from Nick Tull.
On Monday at Cedar Crest High School, Tull her earned that title when he captured the championship of the Number One Singles bracket at the Lebanon County Tennis Championship. And Tull left no doubts about it, with his 6-0, 6-0 whitewashing of Annville-Cleona’s Julian DyReyes-Kapp in the final match.
The Cedar Crest senior was all over DyReyes-Kapp from the start, and never relented. Tull wore down the Little Dutchman with a devastating combination of high-powered serves, well-placed backhands and strong forehands.
Tull’s championship represented the tenth straight season that a Cedar Crest player has won the Number One Singles title.
But maybe even more sweet was the fact that Tull’s crown helped the Falcons to the overall team championship. The title was the Falcons’ 15th overall, in the 22-year history of the event, but their first outright crown since 2012.
