Seth Lipe and Carson Ware won the No. 3 doubles final 6-4, 6-4 win over Belleville West’s Sam Calhoun and Austin Quandt.

Edwardsville’s boys tennis team started the Southwestern Conference Boys Tennis Tourney in good fashion, assistant coach Jamaal Heavens said.

“I think they played very well with each of the flights,” he said. “I thought we did the best we could have, especially the younger guys at No. 1 doubles. They are growing a lot and hopefully can build upon this for sectionals. Carson Ware was definitely on top of his game, helping lead freshman Seth Lipe. Luke Motley and Erik Weider are a new tandem and having success and playing well.”

Singles action in the SWC Tourney resumes Saturday morning.
