Hibbing juniors Scott Perunovich and Jake Jolowsky are heading back to the Minnesota high school boys tennis state tournament for a third consecutive season after winning the Section 7A doubles title Wednesday in Virginia.
Perunovich and Jolowsky posted a 6-0, 6-0 win over Virginia senior Olin Lundgren and sophomore Ethan Youso in the semifinals to clinch a berth to state before toppling Cloquet seniors Rob Sobczak and Ryan Willgohs 6-4, 6-3 in the final.
Sobczak and Willgohs, who fell one win short of reaching state a year ago playing with different doubles partners, beat Virginia sophomore Jake Seitz and junior Connor Croft in the semis 6-4, 6-3, to clinch a spot at state.
In singles play, it was an all-Duluth Marshall final for the second straight season as senior Peter Summers took down sophomore David Bush 6-4, 6-2. Summers, who made his first state tournament appearance last spring, was Section 7A runner-up last year.
The Class A state singles and doubles tournament is June 9-10 at the Reed Sweatt Family Tennis Center in Minneapolis.
