Konstantin Lazarov came from behind to win the No. 1 singles championship and help Wharton to a first-place finish at the Western Conference boys tournament Wednesday at Riverfront Park.

Lazarov lost the first set before rallying to defeat Plant's Nick Bass 6-7, 7-5, 6-4. Greg Fischer and Neil Allman also won singles titles for Wharton, which edged second-place Bloomingdale 7-6.

Fischer recovered from a first-set loss to defeat Bloomingdale's Scotty Conley 2-6, 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3 singles. Allman held on to beat Bloomingdale's Jason Williams 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 at No. 4.

Eli Samaha (No. 2) of Plant and Andy Nessmith (No. 5) of Bloomingdale won the other singles championships.

Plant's Bass and Javier Martinez (No. 1) and Bloomingdale's Conley and Williams (No. 2) claimed doubles titles.


Gaither leads King 5-4 after Wednesday's first round at Whiteway Courts.

Plant and Bloomingdale follow with three and two points, respectively.

Gaither's Brianna Williams and King's Linda Tien, who won 6-0, 6-0 in their semifinal matches, will meet today to determine the conference No. 1 champion.
