Jonathan Ho beats four opponents and wins the district championship
Eye of a Papermaker
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Jonathan Ho was tired of playing second fiddle. He wanted to be the best.
On Saturday, the Camas High School sophomore defeated Tanner Blake 6-4, 6-4 for the 4A district singles championship at the Vancouver Tennis Center.
"It feels good to finally beat somebody from Union," Ho said. "That's what every Papermaker wants."
Blake had Ho on the ropes with a 4-3 advantage in the second set, but the Papermaker got right back into the fight and quickly turned the tables. Ho sent Blake into a tailspin by winning the next two games to gain a 5-4 lead. As Ho stepped back to serve during that final sequence, the look in his eyes said he was not going to give this game away.
