George Mason High School’s tennis team was represented well by the Kan Tagami and Jay Rodock doubles team, which played in the VHSL semifinal and final tonight at Hampden Sydney College and won both games.
The team played Dayton Dunnavant and Graham Pugh from Randolph Henry High School in the semifinal and defeated the duo in two sets of the best-two-out-of-three play, 6-0 and 6-2.
This was the second time this month that Tagami has played Dunnavant, as the two went head-to-head in the May 24 regional singles semifinal. Tagami won in two sets, 6-0 and 6-2.
Tagami and Rodock moved on to the finals, and again defeated their opponents in two sets, this time taking down Simon Willard and Sandy Cheung from Riverheads High School, 6-0 and 6-0.
Tagami faced Willard in the regional final, and won 6-2 and 6-0.
Rodock and Tagami will move on to the state doubles single A finals June 10-11 as a doubles team, and Tagami will play in the singles finals on June 9. This will be a repeat appearance for the team, who last year made it to the tournament but lost in the semifinals. Tagami also made it to the singles finals last year, and is the top seed in this year’s tournament.
