Triway has big day at sectionals

Heading into the Div. II Wooster Sectionals, Triway was in the midst of adversity that could have carried over to the court. Instead, they rallied, using that strife to be dominant on the tennis court and follow the lead of captain Logan McAllister.

“We had some turmoil heading into the tournament,” said Jason Self, who recently took over as Triway’s head coach. “But McAllister pulled the guys together and put the expectation out there, that they had to perform. Every one of them stepped up big.”

Biggest of all was McAllister himself, who opened with a battle against St. Vincent-St. Mary’s Nathan Smith. McAllister saw a 4-1 lead begin slip away in the first set before rallying and finishing with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-2) win to advance. His reward of him was facing Central Christian’s Nathan Stjernholm, the No. 4 seed, and McAllister fell behind early 4-6. With some words of advice between sets with Self, McAllister tightened up the screws and rallied for his sixth win of the season 6-3, 10-5.
