Roundup: Penn, Marian to meet in boys tennis sectional final

The only thing that slowed down the Penn tennis team's quest for another sectional title Tuesday was the weather.

And that only delayed one individual semifinal match for the Kingsmen.

The host Kingsmen advanced to the final round by downing Adams in sectional semifinal play.

Penn was leading 4-0 when rain forced the No. 2 doubles match to be completed Wednesday. The Kingsmen, who have won 20 straight sectional titles, will then face Marian in the sectional finale Wednesday.

The No. 29 ranked Kingsmen dropped a total of just three games in winning their four spots versus the Eagles. Petter Klasson won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 singles to pace Penn, now 15-2.

Marian defeated Mishawaka 4-1 in the other semifinal Tuesday evening.
