McALESTER — McAlester tennis coach Chad Waller twice put the fate of his teams in the hands of his two-doubles pairs.
Twice the two-doubles pairs came through.
A two-set victory by boys’ two-doubles pair Eric Borengasser and Sam DeNike gave McAlester a key tie-breaker in the finals, helping lead the Buffs to a championship in Thursday’s McAlester Team Tournament at the Bob Brumley Gymnasium tennis courts.
Girls’ two-doubles pair Jennifer Amy and Parker Tidwell also won their third match in two sets, helping the fifth-seeded Lady Buffs take third.
