DES MOINES — Waterloo Columbus senior duo Taylor Hogan and Daniel Buchanan captured the 2019 Iowa State co-ed Class 1A state tennis tournament title Tuesday at the Waveland Tennis Courts.

Hogan and Buchanan had to win six matches, including preliminary match, eventually downing Brooke Jorgensen and Jordan Roozeboom of Pella, 6-1, 6-1 in the finals.

Hogan and Buchanan were dominate most of the day, surviving their biggest scare in the quarterfinals when Macy Harris and A.J. Wilkins of Grinnell won the first set from them before the Sailors rallied for a 6-7, 6-2, 1-0 victory.

The title is Buchanan’s second as he won with Olivia Fain in 2017, and finished second with Fain last spring.

Westhoff also pitched the final five innings for the Sailors allowing four hits and a pair of earned runs to pick up the win. Tristan Wright added two hits for Columbus.

Wapsie Valley was led by Tanner Blaylock, who went 2-for-3 with 2 RBIs.
