YAIAA Singles Tournament
Seven Times Area players remained in title contention following completion of the first two rounds of the YAIAA Singles Tournament on Thursday.
In Class 3A, New Oxford’s Justin Gruver and Gettysburg’s Drew Heinzelmann recorded two wins apiece. Gruver, the No. 4 seed, did not drop a game in wins over Sam Sidle of Northeastern and Kwaku Baryeh of Gettysburg. The Colonial squares off against No. 8 Sebastian May of Dallastown when play resumes today at noon at Wisehaven Tennis Center in York.
Heinzelmann opened with a 6-1, 6-1 victory before locking horns with Noah May of Dallastown in the second round. Heinzelmann won 6-1 before May responded with a 6-3 triumph. The Warrior returned to form in the decisive set, scoring a 6-1 win to set up today’s match against No. 2 Parker Lando of York Suburban.
In Class 2A, Delone Catholic’s Matt Steinberg and Evan Brady went unscathed. The second-seeded Steinberg racked up two straight 6-0, 6-0 wins to book a spot in the quarterfinals against Nate Remington of Littlestown. Remington defeated Antonio Corona of Hanover in straight sets before winning by injury default over Biglerville’s Michael Rayo.
Brady rolled in his opener to face up a match against teammate Paul Tily, the No. 5 seed. Brady pulled out a 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 win in the all-Squire battle to move on. Brady faces top-seeded Augie Citrone of West York today.
Bermudian Springs’ Brett Laughman and Nate Edmondson combined to go 4-0. Laughman needed three sets to take out Marin Thomas of Susquehannock in the second round. He’ll face No. 3 Jack Citrone of West York next.
Edmondson edged York Catholic’s Ethan Underwood in three sets in his opener before running into Jeremy Snyder of Delone. Snyder was slated to face No. 6 Noah Mattson of Biglerville, but the Canner was scratched from the tournament. Instead, Snyder thumped first alternate Jaydon Vu of West York before dropping a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 match against Edmondson.
The Eagle looks to upset No. 4 Andy Snyder of Susquehannock today.

Josh Topper made the two runs stand by firing a dandy from the mound. Topper struck out six and walked one, working around seven Trojan singles.
