  • BREAKING: Fulgenzi repeats in...

    ALBUQUERQUE - -  Warren Fulgenzi Jr. shook off a shaky start and got on a roll to capture his second consecutive Class 1A-4A boys' singles championship Thursday evening at Jerry Cline Complex. 

    Fulgenzi defeated Will McDermott of St. Mike's, 6-3, 6-0, in the final. The taller, rangier McDermott gave Fulgenzi some anxious moments early on, taking a first game, and it was 3-2 at one point in the first set. Much of the issue lay in short service returns by Fulgenzi, but the Horseman's reach also kept him in volleys longer than most opponents.
