ALTON -- Teutopolis High School captured fourth place in the Alton Doubles Tennis Invitational Saturday.

Alton won the event with 37 points followed by Belleville Althoff 31, St. Louis U High 28, Teutopolis 26, DeSmet Jesuit 21, Fort Zumwalt South 18 1/2, Champaign University High 11 and Marquette Catholic 7 1/2.

Trevor Lee and Jacob Mette claimed first place in the No. 4 doubles. The pair defeated Belleville Althoff 6-2, 6-1, St. Louis University High 6-3, 6-2 and Alton 7-5, 7-5.

Kyle Brumleve and Nick Pals took fourth place at No. 1 while Jay Funneman and Mitch Meinhart also finished fourth at No. 3. Calvin Kreke and Drew Copple took fourth at No. 5. Andy Mersman and Keith Weber were sixth at No. 2.

"This was a fun event and a good showing for the guys," said T-town Coach Kaye Kimpling. "They all did well in their flights as none of them were seeded, but did well despite that and ended up surprising a lot of people. It was a great experience playing some schools we usually don’t get to play."
