Canfield duo wins state tennis title

Canfield’s Hannah and Sydney Cianciola won two matches on Saturday and captured the Division I state doubles title at the Lindner Tennis Family Center in Mason.

The Cianciolas beat North Canton Hoover’s Hallie Hunt and Alessa Koinoglou in the semifinals, 6-3, 6-1. The Canfield duo then handled Green’s Anne and Maria Zivick in the final, 6-4, 6-3.

The Cianciolas never lost a set during sectional, district or state action.

In the Division I boys golf state tournament, Boardman finished sixth with a score of 318. The event was shortened to 18 holes because of bad weather.

Brian Terlesky led the Spartans with a score of 76, which left him tied for ninth overall. He was followed by Cade Kreps and Cole Christman, both at 79, Bryan Kordupel with an 84 and Bobby Jonda with an 87. Christman is a sophomore and the other all are juniors.

In the girls state tournament, Jacinta Pikunas of Boardman shot a 78 and Hannah Keffler of Canfield carded an 81.
