Plainfield - The Zionsville boys tennis team took care of business in the regional semifinal Tuesday afternoon.

The Eagles made quick work of Covenant Christian, 5-0, to advance to Thursday’s regional final against Brebeuf Jesuit.

"It was pretty good today," Zionsville head coach Earl Allen said. "We were a little flat in some of our courts. But it is a long season, and we just have to keep on getting geared up for the next match."

With the quick turnaround to face a quality Brebeuf team on Thursday, Allen said the team wanted to make sure they were as efficient as possible against the Warriors.

The team was able to do just that, with only one spot dropping more than three games.

"It is always nice to get off the court quickly," Allen said. "We told the guys before the match that we wanted to come out, take care of business and stay as fresh as possible. We knew Brebeuf was going to have some longer matches today, so hopefully that works to our advantage."

At No. 1 singles, Cole Chappell won 6-2, 6-0 over Luke Susud.

At No. 2 singles, Nick Bailey made quick work of Brenner Lampton, winning 6-0, 6-0.

"He is getting stronger as the year goes on," Allen said. "That is a court that we really need, and seeing him play well now and peaking at the right time of the season is critical."

At No. 3 singles, Austin Kuklak was a 6-1, 6-2 winner over Joseph Bird.

At No. 1 doubles, Robert Campbell and Ryan Carr won 6-3, 6-2 over Wilson and Shelton and at No. 2 doubles, Nick Winters and Ethan Perry won 6-1, 6-2 over Chen and Burris.

Zionsville will now face 15th-ranked Brebeuf on Thursday.

The two teams met late in the season, with the Eagles edging a 3-2 win.

"We have to serve well," Allen said. "We want to make sure that we are dictating the points. We have done that all season so far, so we have to continue it."
