Webster Schroeder freshman Matt Gamble repeated as the top Section V singles qualifier for the state tennis tournament when he defeated Matt Renzi of Pittsford Mendon in the final Saturday at Mendon.
Gamble, who lost in the quarterfinals at the state tournament last year, defeated Renzi 6-3, 6-2 and lost just six games throughout the qualifier.

Renzi will still advance to states as will Batavia’s Nate Palmer, who defeated James Gayvert of Fairport for the third qualifier spot.
