Behind a strong pair of doubles tandems, Windham’s boys tennis squad eliminated Westbrook in the regional finals, 3-2, Wednesday. The Eagles travel to Lewiston for the state title match Saturday.

Windham’s top doubles duo, Nick DiFiore and Dylan Saucier, easily beat Jake LaViolet and David Born, 6-0, 6-1, while the Eagles Justin Kuliga and Ben Hodge did the same to Brian Cooke and John Hilton, 6-2, 6-2.

“Doubles has been our lock,” said Windham coach Wayne Martin. “Westbrook singles pulled it out against Kennebunk (in the previous round) and it was almost that way again.”

But Jeremy Egan, in the Eagles’ No. 2 singles spot, avenged a regular-season loss to Spencer Carson, winning 6-2, 7-6 (7-2).

The match, which began Wednesday morning at Bates College, was finished at Portland’s Racket and Fitness Center due to rain.

Saturday’s championship match is scheduled to begin at 9:30 at Lewiston High School, but the Racket and Fitness Center will again be on standby, in case of precipitation.

“It’s no secret that Lewiston is the dynasty of Maine tennis,” Martin said. “They’ve always been the model for every team.”

Windham did scrimmage the Blue Devils in the preseason, losing a close match, 3-2.
