Eric Hoium is one win away from a state berth in stingles.

Benson junior Eric Hoium is the only member of the Benson boys tennis team still in contention for a state berth after the first two rounds of the Section 6A Individual Tourney last Wednesday at St. Ben’s.

Hoium earned the second seed in the singles tourney and earned a first-round bye before winning his next match against the seventh seed.

Hoium next faces sixth-seeded Griffin Kinney, of Litchfield, with the winner advancing to the state tournament.  The top two singles’ players and top two doubles’ teams earn state berth along with the Section 6A team champion, Litchfield, which upset top-seeded Pine City in the finals, 5-2.

Benson fell to Litchfield in the first round of the tourney, 6-1, ending the Braves’ season with a 2-11 overall record and 2-3 mark within the WCC.

Minnewaska Area won this year’s WCC title with a 5-0 league mark with YME (4-1) placing second and LQP-DB (3-2) third.

The Section 6A  “Final Four” was set for Tuesday, May 29, at St. Ben’s.

Also competing at the individual tourney, but losing in the first round, were Daniel Lamarque in singles, and Jonas Habben-Kyle Reese, and Peyton LeClair-Taylor Duncan in doubles....
