SUNRIVER — Summit High finished off Saturday what it started on Friday, winning the Class 5A Special District 1 boys tennis championship at Sunriver Resort.

The Storm's Chandler Oliveira cruised past Redmond's Zach Powell 6-1, 6-0 in the singles final, while Scott Parr and Liam Hall claimed the district doubles championship by besting teammates Parker Nichols and William Dalquist 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.

Summit, which scored 38 team points over the two-day tournament, advanced seven players to next week's 5A state tournament in Portland and Beaverton, as Thomas Wimberly and Elliott Sherpa also move on past districts with their third-place doubles finish.

Mountain View's Phillip Atkinson, who entered the tournament unseeded, finished third and earned a spot in state in the singles bracket, falling to Oliveira 6-1, 6-2 in Saturday's semifinal round before holding off Hood River Valley's Scottie Ziegner 7-5, 2-6, 6-1. With Atkinson's run through the singles bracket, the Cougars finished second behind Summit with 15 points.

Bend and Redmond tied for third with 12 points.

The Lava Bears' Cameron Tulare and Joshua Woodland also punched a ticket to the 5A state championships. Bend's top doubles squad ended the tournament in fourth place, dropping back-to-back matches to Summit's two doubles teams on Saturday after going 3-0 with a quarterfinal win on Friday.
