Orange Coast League singles champion Teague Hamilton's postseason run came to an end on May 31 when he fell in a second-round match at the CIF Southern Section Boys' Individual Tennis Championships.
Hamilton, the Laguna Beach High senior, was eliminated in the round of 16 by PAC League champion, Eli Whittle of Arroyo Grande, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4, at Seal Beach Tennis Center in Seal Beach.
Gage Brymer of University High, singles champion of the Pacific Coast League, went undefeated in four matches (8-0 sets record) and swept his way to the Southern Section singles title.
Hamilton won his first two postseason matches by sweep last week at the individual sectional tournament play at Corona del Mar High. He had received a first-round bye for the individual championships.
Hamilton will compete Saturday and Sunday at the 98th annual Santa Barbara Designated Junior Tournament. Later this month, he will compete at the 111th annual Southern California Junior Sectional Championships, the largest junior tournament in the country.
