High school boys tennis: Viewmont hopes to end Brighton's 7-year reign in 5A
Budge won a state title at first doubles, but the other three are all state tourney newbies.
Viewmont’s first doubles team of seniors Ethan Hymas and Isaac Ford finished second last year, but they’re more than capable of taking the next step this year.
Not as much is expected of Viewmont’s second doubles team of Zach Beckstrand and Brandon Kasparian, but their success is just as important as their teammates if the Vikings are to unseat Brighton.
