Stevens Point Area Senior High and Newman Catholic carry the best chances among central Wisconsin schools to advance the most players from WIAA sectional tournaments today to the WIAA state tournaments in the coming weeks.

Both schools have the maximum four singles players and three doubles teams competing in sectional tournaments. SPASH players will be at the Division 1 Eau Claire Memorial Sectional, and Newman players will be at the Division 2 Kohler Sectional.

The state individual tournament is Oct. 17-19 at the Neilsen Tennis Stadium in Madison. The state team tournament is the next week, Oct. 25-26, also at the Neilsen Tennis Stadium.

Other central Wisconsin schools with sectional qualifiers include D.C. Everest, Wausau East, Wausau West, Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids in Division 1, and Medford and Pacelli in Division 2.

The top four finishers in the No. 1 flights, along with the top finisher in the No. 2 flight, advance to the state individual tournament. In the team competition, only the sectional champion advances to the state team tournament.
